That all sounds very high and mighty doesn't it? I'm trying to reclaim some yarn from an old cardigan. My Grandmother brought this sweater home from a trip to Scotland and it was quite special to her. I have still been wearing it but it's (or was) full of holes and I know if I don't get one of those old fav but completely disreputable clothing items out of the house I will continue to wear it. So, I pulled it apart. The fronts were steaked unfortunately but the rest gave up quite a bit of quite nice wool. So in for a soak, a stretch and I'll swatch some things up and see if it can become a new vest (as my old one seems to be full of holes! See a theme here at all?!)
Maybe this can be called The Winter Bea Cleans Up Her Look.
