We interrupt our series of spinning updates to report on an experiment.
One of the projects we included in our Heritage Knitting Workbook was for a cute little pence purse (or pence jug). It is a really cute little purse knit with size 5 cotton. We've been doing some testing so when I saw this Red Heart Eco-Cotton the other day at Hobby Lobby, I just had to take the experimentation a step further. This is 75% recycled cotton yarn and there's 145 yards in the skein. I don't enjoy knitting with cotton yarn so I didn't enjoy it from that perspective but 1 skein made this larger version of this purse and it made the "knitting with cotton" worth the effort. Have a look:
