recyling

Sister spun & dyed this lovely soft cormo which I knitted into a vest for Grandmother. Just this last month I got it out, unknitted it and washed the wool. The vest was too small for me but the yarn was too good to waste so I am weaving it on the new Tumbling Block looms and intend to make myself a vest. I have some novelty yarns that I spun up a long time ago that match this and I think I can make a great vest with the combination. I cut a newsprint pattern from a vest that fits me. I think I have nearly enough blocks woven now that I can start assembling it. I’ll need some half blocks yet, of course. It’s a good way to reuse the yarn and will be a memory of Grandmother, too.
