New projects

I've started a couple of new projects.

In fact, the materials I'm using are exciting me so much that I see a new line of products on the horizon. I'm working with pre-made sweaters purchased from thrift stores.

Here's the first project:

This is the "before".

I washed them all in super hot water a few times to felt then started the arduous process of deconstruction.

This is the first step of break down.

And here is the second step.

This second step is still in process - so when I get started on the third and fourth step I'll post updated photos.

And here's the second project. In my search for 100% wool sweaters I, on occasion, come across a beautiful yarn (most likely NOT wool) - a sweater that can be completely torn down, in order to recycle the yarn into something else.

Here's what I found recently.

And the end product of the breakdown.

The newly knitted project will be posted in the near future.

OMG! That is AMAZING!
LOL, thanks. What part?!
The whole recycling/reusing thing! Reclaiming that beautiful yarn, making little squares from the old sweaters to use for something else... It's all just so amazing... ^-^
Well thanks. And I have a bunch of sweater left over to make pillows (got some fiberfill from someone on freecycle) and scarves. YEAH!
