  • Cheap-as-Chips Sweaters?!

    Hi!
    I've seen loads of cool tutorials using nicely patterned sweaters (as well as 100% wool sweaters for felting) and was wondering where you get them in the UK? People in America seem to all have a job lot of really cool sweaters on hand!
    I thought of charity shops but they probably aren't really that cheap, and you'd be lucky to find a nice pattern/colour. Bit too time consuming to wade through them all? Plus they're too heavy to make buying over the internet economical. lol I'm a bit stuck :-/

    Thanks for any help in advance!

      lol I'm not much of a knitter! It'd probably take me months to make a sweater hehe, any other ideas?!

        I'm afraid all my other ideas are along the same lines - maybe you can find a friend (or make one on here? ) who will knit some squares for you?

        Personally, I am waiting for the OH (a new knitter) to gain enough confidence to make me one!

          Carboots. Ask At your local Charity shop If they would save you some that aren't fir to sell.

            No problem just give me an idea as to what you want and I should be able to make it. I have a source of chunky wool that is quite lightweight. To get an idea as to the prices please take a look at the small amount of adult knitwear I have on my website. Hope this helps.
