After a few failed attempts I finally reclaimed my first two sweaters and now I'm addicted. I never thought unraveling yarn would be so calming.I can't wait to go back to the thrift store on Friday my stash is in serious need of some yummy cotton.
these are awesome. The oldest patterns I have are from 1905ish. It's a nice leaflet in good cndition but there are pictures of this guy modeling a helmet hat that scare the poo out of me. He looks like a serial killer.
I've had several good finds 20 cones machine yarn for $16.00. There were cotton yarns, slub,wool, and novelty I almost passed out when I saw all of it. The biggest cone weighed 3 pounds and the smallest was 10 ounces.
I also found 6 skeins of Chelsea by Tahki Stacy Charles for $3.00.I really love this yarn it's a purple tweed wool and silk blend.
I really want to start going to yard sales but I don't know where to find the ones with craft goodies.
After four days and a massive headache I finally figured out the Rose Art Machine. It works well but the directions that are included are pretty crappy.I think that the bad directions are the reason this product has been given such bad ratings its not that it doesn't work it's that you have to be super persistant to get it going.
My next challenge is getting the Singer Deluxe to work.I think I have the basics figured out I just need to trying knitting on it. I love that it's a flatbed machine it should be good practice until I can get a real knitting machine.
