This was my first try at recycling yarn from old sweaters, and washing yarn. It's kind of insane how much yarn I got out of that sweater. I don't have a swift or a winder, but doing everything by hand wasn't really all that hard. I learned a lot from this first try, and I got a few more sweaters to rip up, so I'm pretty stoked about how much yarn I'm going to have. Recycling is awesome.
