I have given away most of my clothes that are now too big for me and now I have started knitting again I wish I had kept my knitted jumpers to recycle.
DH has accidently lost about 5 kilos since I have lost weight and his beautiful black knitted jumper that I made him a couple of years ago (and he had hardly worn) is now way too big. Last night I tried to unpick the stitches to re-knit it but, as I had sewn it up never to come undone, I couldn't get it undone. I then had a half cut up mess! I couldn't bear to throw away all my hard work so I decided to get my sewing machine out and make cushion covers! I am so glad I saved my knitting.
Don't always throw out or give away - recycle!!!
P.S. (Why doesn't black photograph well?)
