knit cloth collar


I bought this amazing yarn Saturday and set my mind to knitting it right away that evening. The yarn is comprised of cloth from vintage aprons and other notions such as ric-rac, thread, crochet beads and lace. I've never knitted with cloth before but, I have always wanted to.
It occured to me to knit it into an apron because knitting something from where the cloth came from would be a nice return to it's original purpose however, there was only 45 yards so that was not going to happen. To finish it, I weaved the teal ribbon through as a tie closure. I'm very pleased with how this turned out.

Wow!! What amazing yarn. I've just started to spin wool myself and it's amazing what can be created from all different kinds of fibres.

this is really neat!

I found your site through a question you had asked about some bloch ballet shoes on Emily's fashion blog. I don't know where they are on the bloch site, but I stumbled across them online last night in the sale area of Urban Outfitters' online store (www.urbn.com). I remembered all those folks who were looking for them and thought you'd like to know!
