ask all the newbie questions you want. I don't care.
As for the tutorial, well...I didn't use one.
And since I had no patience, really, I just snipped the sides and didn't mind the short pieces.
Yah, see, originally, I wanted to make a multi-striped sweater, so I used old sweaters plus short pieces I'd found in my stash. (Barely made a dent) Well, the sweater ended up very, very multi-striped and looked nice until I made the mistake of putting in a hot wash load. It shrunk! So...not wanting to waste all that yarn, I upcycled yet again this time plying the yarn back onto itself.
Definately, have to stitch a swatch. I'll start tomorrow. Shouldn't take long.
Then you can tell me if you want a skein.
