The Husband is convinced that buying old sweaters at thrift shops and repurposing the yarn would be a fantastic business. It's low overhead, environmentally sound and has a thrill of the hunt twinge to it when tracking down the right sweaters. Could be fun. I'm pretty sure there's one or two folks who do pretty well with it on ebay. I've always wanted to try it out, but the thrift sweater shopping in Texas is incredibly limited. I take a peek through the sweaters every time we cruise through Goodwill, but I've yet to find even one sweater made of anything other than acrylic. For now I'll just envy all of you with access to cold weather thrift shops.
I was incredibly happy and surprised yesterday when I checked the mail to find Michelle (yarn recycler extraordinaire) had RAOk'd me with some fun black and red recycled yarn. I was not expecting this at all! She even labelled each ball with the yardage. How sweet is that? Thanks Michelle, you made my week!
