Saving the World
Isn't that what "Eco" friendly is all about? I did my part... I finished the Eco Vest. Somehow, I don't think that's what the designer had in mind, but it's my story and...
Totally re-cycled yarn! The light lavender is the infamous Mongolian Cashmere that has crossed the Atlantic 4 times, and will make one more crossing to arrive "home". It's doubled in this pattern, and super cuddly! (I, ahem, wore it last night to an outdoor concert - toasty!) The darker color is Angora, and very cuddly, except when it's right-next-to-cashmere. This yarn used to be the sleeve of a sweater. Now a vest, because the sweater was too warm.
It wasn't a problem... nothing to tell, moving along...
Started a "mystery shawl"! First two rows look great! I mean, who knows? I like the yarn and the beads.
