I enjoy browsing thrift stores, and I’ve seen some ugly sweaters I’d love to pull apart for the gorgeous and/or fun yarn. I wasn’t corageous enough to try it, though, until I was inspired by Marlo’s prayer pot, which I fell dearly in love with as soon as I saw it.
So, today I stopped by Goodwill to see what I could find. I came out with three sweaters made of unique yarn that would have cost me a bundle if I bought it at a yarn store. The blue one and the pastels one were $3.39 each. They should have been $4.59, but the lady charged me for blouses instead of sweaters. The one in reds and pinks was $2.59 because it was children’s.
This is going to be a fun adventure. I’m not yet sure what I’ll make with the yarn, but I have some ideas. A couple of prayer pots are definitely on my to-do list once Marlo finishes writing up the pattern.
