I've been donating my giant pile of hats over the last couple months. This was 80+ hats. Plus there was another box that want to another place.

So much more space for yarn now!

Is it spring yet?

Guess I will settle for sprigs of lavender and rosemary. At least the cats don't eat these!

I may just have weird cats! The ragdolls in particular seem to love flowers. My cat likes wheat grass but is mush better about not chewing on other plants!

A few tips for how I recycled cashmere. 

PS- the blanket I am working on is almost 4 feet square now! All cashmere. Seems like I will be done...just in time for summer.

Def only worthwhile for fancy/expensive yarn- a couple dollars on a sweater is worth it for the cashmere or wool blends, but much harder to justify for cotton or acrylic!

Cashmere blanket continues. If you look closely at the yarn you can see where I divided and recombined the strands to get the right number of strands, taking it from 3 to 4.

For the record, I am resisting this knit themed bedding (and pillows!). For now.

+Candice D I know! Geez, if they cam in a light/dark gray combo they would be on their way to me right now! Wish there was more (not "crafty" or "kitschy") knitting themed prints out there.

+Dave Bennett it rotates too :) trying to figure out what I can do with knitting/crochet that it would be awesome for (baby booties in timelapse may be possible). Though as +Jake Englund pointed out, google glass would be entertaining for shooting knitting video (without the hassle of finagling the tripod).

Getting bigger! The blanket is now big enough that I can only knit a few garter ridges every night (several hundred stitches across!).

The latest cashmere sweater I have been unravelling- notice how neatly the hems were finished!

This takes so much patience - and nerve! Good for you!

Spices- making some rice pudding from leftover rice.
(I make mine in the rice cooker, using the porridge setting.)

I am taking extreme cashmere measures as I knit a blanket from recycled cashmere yarn. 

The good: All the cashmere sweaters are made up of similar sized strands of cashmere, and I had minimal breakage from unravelling. And 3 of the 4 sweaters have the same number of strands (4). 

The bad: One of the sweaters is only 3 strands of cashmere, instead of 4. And cashmere is delicate. An evening of - carefully- unwinding one strand and combing the strands to get 4 strands...and I am finally back on track. I have another sweater I could unravel part of to make this blanket, but suspect it is only 3 strands. I don't think I could face that about now!

Good luck! The finished blanket will definitely be worth it.

Introduction
Unraveling knitting. Currently obsessed with knitting hats in fun textures and unusual color combinations. Sometimes I publish knitting patterns. I live in a house at the edge of a cliff high above the Puget Sound in a small town north of Seattle.
