Yay! A wonderful day of Yarn, Yarn, Yarn!!

Today was a BLAST!

I met a friend from Ravelry (knitnatnc), and she gave me lots of yarn for charity! :)

Woo Hoo!

Gift Yarn

I spent a lot of time rewinding some of the yarn. Now, it's all in pretty center-pull cakes!

When I finished organizing all that yarn, I took photos of it all and put it in my stash on Ravelry.

Then, I went back to my craft room and finished unravelling the sweater I've been working on. I got it at Goodwill for a few dollars, and want to use the yarn to make some socks and a scarf.

After I finished unravelling it, I wound it all on my yarn swift, so I could make hanks.

I went to hang one of the hanks on a doorknob, and it reminded me of hair. So I stuck it on my head, looked in the mirror, and busted out laughing. My hubby asked what I was doing, and I told him to grab the camera.

Here's my yarn hair:

And my yarn moustache:

My hubby was a good sport to take photos, wasn't he? :P

After goofing off a while longer, I got back to work. I took the hanks to the kitchen and got them wet. Then hung them up to dry, weighting them down to pull out the kinks in the yarn.

Like I said, it was a good yarn day at my house. ;)

I just recently came to the realization that you could actually reuse the yarn in sweaters, so thanks for posting about it; now I know that it really can be done! The yarn hair and moustache definitely look like something I would do, lol!
