Looky, looky!! Lots and lots of pretty pink yarn!! I’ve finished unraveling the double-strand afghan that I found at Savers. My double ball-winder technique worked very smoothly and now I have over three and a half pounds of RHSS “Light Raspberry” yarn to add to my charity stash!
My next unraveling project is already waiting for my attention, a knitted afghan, also from Savers. It’s another that weighs over three pounds and, again, was only $3.99! It’s big, 60″ x 78″, plus the fringe, and too heavy for a small child to easily carry around. Drag!, yes, but carry?, no.
I hope to unravel just half, leaving a child-sized afghan. I’ll have to see how tricky the color strips are to partially disassemble and bind-off. Hopefully it will be a simple re-finishing job. If I’m successful, I’ll have a smaller afghan and about eight ounces each of yellow and green yarns for the charity stash. They’ll go nicely with some of my freshly harvested “Light Raspberry”.
These colors make me think about sitting down with a bowl of rainbow sherbet! Oh, to crochet a rainbow sherbet ripple! But I’m missing the orange. Lemon, lime, raspberry and orange, right? I’ll have to do another stash dive and see if I can find some!
