"If you want to destroy my sweater
(whoa whoa whoa)
pull this thread as I walk away"
Once upon a time there was a sweater. It was pink. It was pretty cute. Then it stopped fitting me. I'm going with the theory that I must have shrunk it. For some reason, I kept it in my closet, which is strange for me because I have clutterphobia (fear of clutter). I literally give and throw everything away. I hate stuff. The Vietnam Vets are on my speed dial (hey, they pick it up!). Still, this sweater sat in my closet. Just awaiting the day it would reach its full potential. Well, my friends, that day has arrived.
I found a website called Reknit. The concept is clear (in their own words):
- you send an old sweater to my mom
- she unravels and reknits it into something new
- a brand-new, handmade, one of a kind item is sent back to you
I love this concept!!
So, just as that ugly ducking turned into a swan, my sweater has now become ....
and it's a pretty cute hat, too!
...And they all lived happily ever after.
