It’s 2013!

Happy new year, everyone! Despite not posting for most of December, I was up to a lot last month. Gifts were made, the split log cabin quilt got a backing and was basted, several hats came into the world, and I began experimenting with a whole new range of reclaimed/scavenged material.

This new genre is a variation on unraveling sweaters and reclaiming the yarn. Now once I have the yarn formerly known as sweater, I combine multiple strands and spin them into a whole new yarn instead of just utilizing the stuff as-is.

So far it’s working pretty well and I’m planning on a tutorial or two, but more experimentation needs be done ere I’m fully confident it’s a good idea to invest more time in. Still, it looks like 2013’s off to a good start.
