It's heavy, a lot of yarn in this old seat cover made in moss stitch, we no long have the chair so I'm recycling the yarn for another project..its taking quite an effort!..worth it, I think it is i love this James C Brett Marble yarn.
un-picked, rolled into a ball, made into hanks, washed, conditioned and drying...
then i can get on with this new flower project, a long shawl/ wrap of flowers...
Waste not want not!
It is a gorgeous yarn! Look forward to seeing what you make with it 😊ReplyDelete
Hi Elly, the flowers, going to be a long wrap i think xxxDelete
It's a beautiful colorway. I recycle yarn that I love......but it's got to be love, not just like because it's a job to unravel anything bigger than a scarf, lol!ReplyDelete
Hi Kim, yes not all yarn unpick well and are usable a second time around, but this James C Brett Marble is, its washed well and first ball is ready to go xxDelete
It is certainly worth the effort. I got that very same yarn and can understand why you love it! The new project looks fab!!
Thanks Ingrid, a wrap pf flowers i think for the new 'old' yarn, the first ball is washed and ready to go, almost as new now xxDelete
You're right, the yarn is so beautiful! Would you mind explaining the best method of washing? We love your gorgeous blog and amazing creations!!ReplyDelete
hi wind into balls easier to do than wind into a hank and tie hand wash the condition wring out and hang to dry, then winding into the final usable ball of wool xxDelete
