WOW! I subscribed to your blog at the time you were seeking your mojo and found it at the thift store. My knitting skills is the basic knit stitch and combining different colors and textures to make scarves. I am stoked to go down to my favorite thrift store and find a knit sweater or two to unravel and reclaim for future scarves. Thanks for doing this blog!

You're quite quick at this unravelling lark, aren't you?
That's why you have this lovely, huge stash, and I...don't!
I shall give myself a stern talking to! ;-)

tea - we're only a stone's throw away :)

sam - sometimes yes... sometimes NO! depends on my mood... and also the garment... these ones were all brilliantly simple to work with

mary ellen - me too! I don't have firm plans for any of it as yet...

i love your blog & am fairly new to the world of reclaiming items...i hadn't really thought beyond just finding what I needed at thrift stores. i love that you can take something old, out of style or just plain ugly & make it into something else & TOTALLY beautiful!

thanks for all the inspiration, even when you lose your mojo!
