Re: 1950's Wool Dress Recycled

I can only imagine how very touched your mother will be on receiving such a beautiful gift, created by you out of something that means so much to each of you. I would love to see her face when she sees it. How sweet of you!

Re: How to Make Hats from Recycled Sweaters

Thanks so much for the idea and instructions. I have 2 questions, if you don't mind answering:

When you say "tiny zig-zag" do you mean tiny stitch length, or tiny zig-zag width, or both?

To felt the wool sweater, is it necessary to wash and dry more than once?

Re: How to Add Crochet Trim to Any Fabric Edge

I'm so glad to see these instructions. Very clear. Thank you.

I've been wanting to remove a too-long, too-tight, turtle neck from a sweater that fits nicely otherwise, and had thought of replacing the turtle neck with crocheted trim using the yarn unraveled from the part I remove. I think you've given me the courage to try it - my crochet experience has thus-far been limited to scarves. Would you advise stay-stitching the neckline of the sweater before I cut off the turtle-neck? Any problems you know of, in using unraveled yarn?
