Ok, so here is my first yarn harvesting! This is from a red knit turtle neck with a metallic thread that runs with the yarn. The metallic adds a nice sparkle, though I was worried that it would cause problems in winding, or a lot of breakage. Fortunately this was not the case.
This is the sweater used as I was taking the seams apart.
And now I have four skeins of red sparkle yarn. What to do with it… hmm… I’ve been thinking about crocheting a red tree skirt for the tree at Christmas. I’ve got a good amount here, but I’m not sure if it is enough or not. I’ll have to think about that. But this much yarn would have cost me probably around $30 at my LYS (local yarn shop.) I got the sweater for $4.
