The yarn is cotton but there is no way I can take this sweater apart, NO WAY!! No, I would love to try to make it into a tote or pillow or something. Or maybe even a framed piece to inspire me. Who knows. For now it will be posted here so I can look at it. The real sweater will probably find it's way into the bottom of my projects pile, which is far too large.

Whoopsie,I accidentally cut the yarn instead of the seam. Oh well, not to worry...I'm going to use this as stuffing for my next amigurumi.

So far I have gotten 3 pink sweaters, 1 turquoise, (my favorite color), 1 medium blue, (also a fav), a peach that is too gorgeous to frog but alas it doesn't fit me & my prize, the Wedgewood blue silk sweater. I'm in unraveling heaven! Most of the sweaters are cotton & cotton blends as there's not much call for wool down here.
The funny thing about this is my hoarding behavior. Shhhh, come closer so no one will hear...if word gets out down here the prices will go up & then I may as well buy the yarn as yarn, right?? One local thrift shop is already on to bargain hunters regarding current trends. Knowing that knitting & crocheting is so popular they price all of their yarns accordingly, (in their minds). Don't get me wrong, I love the folks who run this store & their proceeds help so many people in need BUT they have skeins of name-brand acrylic in plain colors priced at $2 a skein. I can get the big skeins new (& dust-free) for $2.47.
I meant to take a picture of all of the sweaters before I started unraveling them but I couldn't help myself. My hands started itching to get started & well, some of them are already in various stages of unravel.
Does this mean I'm cured of my chicken & felting & felted chicken addictions??? Naaaahhhh!!

Uh huh, now that's what I'm talking about...visable tan lines!!"Tan don't burn get a Coppertone tan!" sigh
Oh & Coppertone suntan lotion. PLEASE don't ever change the fragrance formula Coppertone Company or the name for that matter. Sure, we're not supposed to sunbathe anymore & yadda, yadda, yadda....so the name "Coppertone" may not make much sense now but hey it's tradition. And, just between you & me, I WANT to have copper-toned skin again, even though I don't.
