The next garment to be unravelled was this brick coloured wrap. The colour is unsuitable for this blanket, but I like the discipline of unravelling things in order of purchase. That way everything gets transformed into yarn, sooner or later. I still leave the ones that are clearly unsuitable for standard blankets. This stole was presumably knitted by a novice. It is a very easy lace pattern, but one row went completely wrong. The stole was bordered by a row of double crochet, to neaten the edges, partially in a different yarn. It has a fringe border too short for any use. Unravelling it was so easy, and the yarn is a lovely double knitting weight alpaca.
The second garment was this Marks and Spencer cashmere polo neck sweater in stripes of red, pink and grey. I bought this at an incredibly low price in a sale - it is such a shame that M&S no longer sell cashmere at such prices. I have worn it quite a lot, but the colours are wrong for me. It looks smart. The narrow stripes were a nuisance in unravelling. The ends had been tied together in knots that were impossible to undo.
