What is on my needles..?

 This project started as a very large thrift store find. It is a Mossimo supply co. sweater, 70% acrylic and 30% wool. The yarn is also think and thin. I really like the tones of grey. It took quite a bit to unravel. A few sweaters I have unraveled use two different balls of yarn switching them every other row which takes longer to unravel.
 The beginning of Leksak Lady...

 Body finished and picking up the front edges...
 Some very dry grass.. we are due for some rain I think..
 On to the crochet edging.. this is eating up a lot of yarn but I'm positive I will have enough to finish.
 One sleeve almost complete. Hopefully I will finish this sleeve tonight and pick up the second one. I'm cleaning up the apartment today. We are going to have an inspection.. what ever that is. This place is small and clean. I just need to organize some stuff to look pretty ..
 I cast on Something Silver . I love the color of this yarn and it is a wool, acrylic,
nylon, rayon blend, also very soft and was a vintage Old Navy sweater once upon a time. I love the sweat yarn combo and my fingers are itching to work on it. As always I will concentrate on finishing Leksak Lady first.

I love seeing how you unravel one sweater and create another one! So cool.
