    Thank you, I like the crew neck to v neck change.

    Thanks, Lorie, so many, many great ideas. Now I'll have to shop the thrift store I donated all our old clothes to this past year. LOL

    I think my favorite is changing a pull over sweater into a cartigan. About 35 yrs ago I bought a beautiful sweater in New Zealand. It was a light pink and so soft, but really fuzzy! While on vaction I thought if I got it wet it would get rid some of the fuzzies going all over. It shrunk the heck out of it. So 35 yrs later I'm going to hack it, as in making it wearable.

    Or maybe a hat and mittens. Believe it or not it does get cold here. lol

    My favorite one isn't on there. I recycle old plain tshirts by cutting off the hem, then spiral cutting the entire body to the armpits, about a half inch wide. Makes one loooonnng piece which I roll into a ball and save til I have a lot of them. Then I crochet it into rugs or whatever. I once crocheted a chunky sweater jacket with it. You can do sweatshirts too, but its bulkier.
