1  Re: Couple questions for those who recycle... in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by cam90066 on: June 13, 2007 05:08:58 PM
Very helpful reply!

During the many THOUSANDS of wraps around the album covers I thought my arm would surely fall off. Did cross my mind that I should've been keeping track to get vague sense of yardage. Sad I just ran across the term 'niddy noddy' while reading some recycling info online. Need to check into that further. My main concern is being able to store, and then use, the yarn and given how fine it is, I feel it would fare better in balls of some sort. (Not keen on all the album covers currently lined up on my LR floor.)

Yes, you understood my yardage question. My only thought was that I orig had just enough of the Saucy to do a cardi but I might be on the lean side. By adding the recycled, I conjured up the notion that I was taking my Saucy from 'light worsted,' per se, to a 'worsted' so that would work up slightly larger. (The Saucy alone was too limp in gauge but looks just right with the recycled added.) Hope that's making sense. Here's pic:

Thanks for the feedback. Appreciated!

2  Can this sweatshirt be helped? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by cam90066 on: May 26, 2007 11:50:11 AM
My fave, old sweatshirt but it now has a few holes. Any ideas on how to salvage? I'm a long-time sewer, can be creative, but am limited to my old Singer (no zigzag), and handwork. Replacing the sleeves wouldn't deal with the underarm hole. I'd like to buy it a bit of time. (second pic is repeat of underarm and elbow of opposite sleeve)

Feedback appreciated.
