Blue Monday

Was once a cardigan, but $1 and several hours of unpicking, unravelling, skeining, washing and drying later it is 515g lovely soft blue 4-5ply wool.



Dunno what it wants to be yet but I've had New Order's Blue Monday stuck in my head since I started winding it. Not a bad song to wind wool to, actually.

Wanders off singing, "... and if it wasn't for your misfortune, I'd be a heavenly person today..."

That is a nice blue. And that is coming from an anti-blue person.

You always manage to renew my optimism about the contents of our two op shops in town. I shall have another forage today.
Cheers Gillian

You've been doing well, Taph! I am somewhat amazed by the cupcake icing colours - how *did* you get that blue?
I'm very impressed by the tons (OK, 1198 g) of reclaimed yarn in non-revolting colours for only $2!

Glad to see you've finally got that loofah thing out of your house; I saw how much you suffered knitting it, so it's just as well your mum loves it!

Oh I love piles of centre pull yarn. I think there are few things in life more pleasing!

Good work!
