The cotton saga

Inspired by others on the Knitty board, I bought a second-hand cotton sweater to recycle.


First I frogged it...


and dyed it...


And now I just have to come up with a project to make with it. I'm going back and forth between a summer cardigan or a tank top with a matching bag. Can't make up my mind. {sigh}

I've got a few other WIP's at the moment, not to mention the Sock It To Me self-patterning sock yarn I've just ordered (that I can't wait to play with!) so I've got lots to keep me busy. I'm supposed to be making some more soap and lotions, but I can't seem to put the needles down lately!

Ooh, that's PRETTY now! What did you dye it with? You've inspired me to try dying some cotton.

Thanks leftie! I just used plain old Rit dye in fussia. I prefer to think of it as raspberry, though. lol
