  1. Fantastic idea! Waste not want not. Good way to keep something you never wear but can’t let go of.

  2. This is interesting, I was going to go through my closet this weekend and get rid of clothing that dosen’t fit anymore. Whatever I don’t donate to the charity shop will be turned into interesting yarns.

  3. FANTASTIC! Finally, Interweave is understanding how their customers are wanting ways to make unique items out of things that they have already around the house! Now if they can show more shows that combine mixed fibers and make larger pieces.

  4. My husband’s grandmother crocheted several throw rugs by cutting socks into strips (spiralling from the top down) many years ago. Nothing like raising a family in depression times to learn to make do!
