Coming all undone

I forgot to tell you in my last post that I picked up another couple of sweaters to unravel at Goodwill last week.

The first was a man's XL pullover from Gap in a dusty periwinkle blue 100% lambswool.

"Was" being the operative word here as it is now 1,372 yards of lovely worsted weight in my stash.

And another cashmere! This one a man's LX pullover in a beautiful green/blue heather; and brand new! It's still got the original tags attached so it was never worn.

This one is now 5,364 yards of 2-ply laceweight in my stash. I've already decided that part of this will become a Balmoral shawl from Marianne Kinzel's Second Book of Lace Knitting. I can't wait to start it!


  1. Oh my, what patience you must have to do all that unraveling, but so worth all the work to end up with such a great stash of yarn.

  2. awesome! My friend is a notorious thrift store frogger (her tutorial was published) and since knowing that I have been really interested in doing it too. Someday...
