I'd been reading the Unraveler's group on Ravelry for quite a while and the sweaters these women find and the recycled items they create have to be seen to be believed. I found100% wool, silk, merino, a beautiful linen silk blend, cotton and yes, cashmere.
Each sweater was $4.99 or less. And I had to stop buying. Between sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting and spinning I'm already way beyond S.A.B.L.E.* I thought I had a picture of the sweater, but I can't find it. Here's a shot of the unraveled yarn. It's a pink cobweb weight. The second pic is truer to the original color.
Unless I quit and don't knit anything but these, I don't think they'll be finished to wear this winter. I didn't use all the original yarn, but I don't have any current plans to use the rest, just yet. Without further ado approximately 4.5 ounces of recycled cashmere.
You can't feel how soft it is, looking at the pictures, but it so soft. I think I'll cast on tomorrow during the game.
