Yet another $1.00 jumper from the op shop pulled apart although for a while there I didn’t think I would get any useable yarn from it at all.
It was a machine knitted jumper and not only did I have over locking on the seams to contend with it also had a sort of bias strip attached to some of the edges which made life interesting. In the end I rescued what I could and abandoned the rest.
The jumper is (or should I say was) 40% mohair, 32% polyester, 28% acrylic. It has lovely and very subtle shades of green and bluey green.
I have a total of 160 grams which I am sincerely hoping is enough to crochet Neptune’s Tears as I think the colours and shading will be perfect.
If that fails then I’m back to the drawing board.
I have no idea when I will get this started but I do have all the wool in a bag (carefully labelled so I don’t loose it) and I have the pattern saved for when the itch to begin it hits me.
