When my mum moved I helped her go through her wardrobe and weed out the things she doesn't wear any more. One item in that category:
A knit by me from my university years, of which I was sufficiently proud to sew in a 'Specially hand made by Mary' label.
Mum was very sweet and insisted she's always liked this piece in spite of its never having flattered her figure - hello, obvious - while conceding that it could go. I remember scoring this yarn at a discount at the Canadian 1980s equivalent of JoAnns and being very excited because it had some mohair in it. I think I also liked the colours, not thinking ahead to the effect of horizontal stripes on a cropped vest.
Well, off it goes from my house now. Which is to say it's in a bag in my car to go off to Goodwill.
Or maybe... should I frog it?
Should I felt it?
Should I offer it to Trish to frog, since she hunts for froggable things at Goodwill and might actually end up paying for this vest? Won't it be a nightmare to frog with all that mohair grabbing at itself? It would be insanely thick if I felt it, assuming there is even enough wool and mohair in there to work.
I think it just needs to go to Goodwill. But maybe I'll talk to Trish first.
