Here is a picture to show you the amount of yarn you get out of just one garment and this is not all because I’ve created a number of things with it already.
This once was a cotton hooded vest and of course I kept the zipper as well. Only the hood had serged seams and was therefore useless. Always remember to check those seams when you go thrift shopping for sweaters to unravel!
Pure cotton knits are not so easy to find so I’m always very happy when I do. The material is extremely versatile and on top I can stencil on it.
Too bad however I didn’t see any cool potholder or cell phone cozy coming from this baby pink. Though it seemed great for face scrubbies after a pile of 20 or so I got fed up of making them and I’m not into baby stuff either. When nothing else came to the question ‘what is cool in pink?’ I simplified that to ‘what is pink?’. First thing that came up was pigs.
