Hey everyone! This is my first post over here on the fiber arts board. I usually stick to the knitting boards for some reason
Anyways, I've recently gotten really into reclaiming / upcycling sweaters. Nearly all of my stash is from recycled sweaters, and I love it. It's addictive. I got in the habit of replying everything, especially if it was a thinner (think: laceweight) yarn, thus getting lovely worsted weight yarn for cheap.
One day I decided I'd try plying two different yarns from different sweaters together, and it was such a revelation. Since then, half the fun is figuring out color combos, etc, and seeing what amazing results I can get from ugly thrift store sweaters!
Here's a collage of my most recent ones:
The two are both 100% wool; the bottom left is a linen / wool combo, middle is wool; bottom right is linen / silk! I love them!
and some ones from months ago: (these are still some of my favs)
These were both silk / wool combos, and were just lovely.
Thanks for looking!
