Mr. Dangly inspired me to knit a Mr.Dangly spin-off bear:

He's also here, with pictures of my thrift store sweater yarn adventure (which is what I made him out of)!

Are you still workin on getting that pattern out there? Cuz I just LOVE this bag, and am wanting to make one for my sisters birthday.  I'm a pretty lame knitter, so the simple straight-needle pattern would be awesome!

I LOVE it!
How did you tear up the fabric? Did you leave it as one long, kinked strip, or did you cut in strips and then tie them together? Thanks.

Very sweet teddy!
Did it take you long to undo the sweater?

I've never done any yarn recylcing.

No actually, it didnt take as long as I thought it would.  The annoying part is cutting the seams, which can be hard if the yarn you are working with has varying widths.  I'm not sure how long the whole process took since I did it in bits, but probably about 2 hours total, maybe 3.  Totally worth it, as it probably produced at least 5 skeins  Smiley

Hey all,
I got sick of buying yarn (and tramping all over town to find yarn stores), so I decided to do a thrift store recycle.

Stage 1
Very large $4 thrift store sweater:

Stage 2

Super thick warm scarf.....

.....and teddy bear for my mom for Mother's Day!

The bear pattern was inspired by spyderbaby's Mr.Dangly pattern.   

Hope you guys like 'em!

I really love the colors.  And lucky you're nice and tan....if I had ended a shirt that short, everyone would have screamed at my impossibly pale stomach. But with your tan it looks great.  So yay for tans! Smiley
