So I just started a brand new website within the last week. I am trying to sell recycled yarn to supplement the small amount of money I get a month from state disability. And by small I mean $115 a month, which has to cover everything but groceries.

What is recycled yarn, you might ask? It is simply taking a sweater (I get most from my local thrift shops) and taking it apart at the seams and then unraveling each section back into yarn. Then I wash and straighten the yarn and post it for sale on the new website and it my Etsy shop.

The link to my site is in my signature line if you are interested.

Thanks and have a great day!

Layne, I love your site and what you do. I've book-marked it to check back regularly. I don't envy you your to-do pile, though! Good luck.
