The title of this post is supposed to make you sympathetic to the following request, before you even read it. :)
I'm trying to collect some old 100% wool sweaters, vests, etc. to "felt" and then turn into creative things. I happened to think that some of you just might have some old, possibly ratty, maybe ugly or out of style sweaters hanging around that you are anxious to clear out of your closets before Christmas arrives. If any of you (in my area) do happen to have some such things, I would be happy to relieve you of them so I can recycle, reuse, and reinvent with them. :)
One of the blogs I enjoy finding inspiration from is: http://blog.betzwhite.com/ . This site will give you an idea of some things that can be created from old wool items. Of course now you may find yourself wanting to hang onto those old garments, and create yourself.
And just in case you are worrying: No, I'm not implying that I have ever seen any of you wearing ugly or out of style sweaters!
