Here is a picture off some pretty yarn I rescued from an ugly jumper, it is lovely and sparkly. I got quite a lot – 1300 m of 4-ply, so I think I am going to make it into one of the jumpers from Jane Waller and Susan Crawford’s A Stitch In Time, a book I am madly in love with and insist that you all go out and buy now. And possibly its sequel, volume two, which is also marvelous. Rescuing yarn from ugly jumpers in a very cheap way to find yarn – this lot only cost me £6, whereas even for the cheapest of 4-ply in that quantity you would have to pay at least £15 for new yarn from a yarn shop.
Get me with my thrifty knitting! How many of you out there have rescued yarn? Let me know!
