sweater ripped

geez, i don't remember the last time that i actually did a whole sweater. usually i just rip one arm because it gives me plenty of wool to play with.

50% mohair/25% nylon/15% angora/10% wool

some is already being used in my next hat.

 

i'm still thinking about getting organized enough to put some recycled wool up on etsy. we'll see. this particular one is notably thinner in certain places and i cannot tell if it's from sweater wear or natural in the wool. i'm suspicious though, so this one better all be used by me or given away. it's lovely lovely stuff though! i heart high quality wool in ugly sweaters.

 

i'm going to begin giving you little bits and pieces of knitting trivia under my photos now because i've been doing so much reading on knitting history for my thesis. i hope you enjoy them. there'll probably be a rant or two thrown in also for good measure :)
