I had an Epiphany

Yesterday was Epiphany. January 6, the day we remember the wise men visiting Jesus. That’s it…."the holidays" are officially over. This is always a mixed blessing for most of us. A time of the year to reflect on the past and dream about the future. I spent the day with my family. We went to church and then out to lunch with friends. Just a normal Sunday…..other than there was something wrong with my husband. He didn’t look his normal dashing….not a hair out of place….self. A hole! As we were walking into church, I saw a huge moth hole in his sweater. I pointed it out, being the helpful wife I am, and we went on with our day.

Then, I had an epiphany. What is one person’s trash, is another person’s treasure, right? I will felt it and make something out of it. I am so excited, but I don’t even know where to start. Does anyone have any ideas?

In regards to your comment asking about storing yarn in plastic bins, I have to say that I have had nothing but good experiences. The only things to worry about (should you wish to do so) are airtightness (actually the lack there of, which can allow moths in natural material yarns) and off-gassing of the plastic (not everyone worries about this, and it only applies to new plastic anyways).

Hiya - Oh what a fabulous knit! Shame about the hole though!

You could felt it into a hand bag with some lovely wooden handles, lining it with some bright pink material... or you could felt it into pencil cases...

Sorry if those ideas are total rubbish, I've never 'felted' before but plan to try it soon.

Much Luv, Annee x
