I finished disassembling it months ago and ended up with a lot of short pieces of yarn. I'm certain if I had taken more care in separating the panels of the sweater, I would have more longer pieces to work with. But this was my first time, so live and learn. Right?
The disassembling portion of this project took a lot longer than I expected, so I bagged up the yarn and put it in my stash until I felt ready to come back to it.
Finally in early October, I didn't have too many projects in work, so I decided it might be time to go back to my recycled wool project.
Initially, I was planning to make socks. But since there are so many short pieces of yarn, I think I would have lots of knots in my socks. Knotty socks would be uncomfortable and the wool is really too scratchy to have right next to the skin. So instead, I have decided on this nightcap which I have wanted to make for a while.
Anyway, I've been working on this nightcap when I want a break from the plumber sweater. So there isn't much progress to show, but here you go...
