recycle!

remember this?





the lining and handles hadn't been touched, so i decided to re-use them...gathered up some wool, dyed it with Wilton's food color, spun it to a bulky weight. then crocheted this:
ca. 1985
it is bright, and i do mean BRIGHT neon colors. not sure why, but i love it!!

the 'prototype' of the Tie One On stole is coming along.

so behind in my posting--
