I started unraveling the metalic mohair sweater.  I know you arent supposed to get sweaters that have serged seams, and although this one had seams that were sewn together it was knit by machine or something because its very difficult to unravel.  The edges are looped within themselves or something so Im not able to unravel continuously. Fortunately I dont care Smiley The yarn is so pretty I just unraveled a sleeve and tied all the ends together. I might ply it with some black yarn.

Actually, if you did knit this yarn together w/ a black yarn and just leave the knots as they fall.. it might make a great scarf!  With some 'extra' character knitted in.  Do a test swatch and see what it looks like.  I knitted a summer tank one summer from tied strips of cotton fabric and I just left the knots showing and it was pretty cool looking-- in a very casual way.  Cheesy

I know where my emergency reserves are..trunk of my car.
If it never comes into the house...save for one ball at a time, it is not really stash.

You write your emergency reserve spots in your knitting book (whether that be one you write patterns in, inventory your yarns, your favorite reread book [like Stitch 'n Bitch, or Yarn Harlot's]) so that you remember where they all are.
I know this because in looking for a hammer my Mister found a reserve I had forgotten about, because it fell on him like a yarny avalanche. He never did buy my "escaped yarn from my stash hid up there and bred" story.  Grin

Ok..here is where I am.
I knitted the body of the shrug...and went the easy route, with no shaping...cause...well..I felt like it?
Anyways, this is it off the machine...the yellow is waste yarn and is removed.
In machine knitting, you can chose to have live stitches left by your cast on and ...well...sort of lack of a bind off. ( The waste yarn used before you start and after you finish prevents the body of the project from unraveling.)
Anyways, I will put those live stitches on a needle for my cuffs, and I will pick up stitches along the neck for an edging there.
I decided to go with non-recycled yarn for my neck and cuff(I'm using Jiffy from lion brand, although I considered colorwaves by lion brand), since there is very little of the chenille now, and I want Bill to have it for his project.
