Episode 53: Recycle Reknit Remake

Episode 53: Recycle Reknit Remake

This is where I record the eleventy billionth knitting podcast.

In this episode I plot my rip out and remake projects. I also share your recycled knit ideas and show the most affordable boucle sweater. My husband joins us in a grainy phone video to talk about the bookshelves he made.

My question for you: We are having a knit/make-along so let me know what you will make and leave suggestions for recycled projects here for everyone else.

Your RecycleReknitRemake ideas: Give them away, felt pieces and sew together, use sweater yarn to reknit in another size or another pattern, cut t-shirts into yarn to knit or crochet into something, use recycled yarn for weavings that allow for yarn weight differences, can felt the woven pieces too, use old unfelted sweaters for laptop cozy, cushions, bags or mittens.
