Announcement   I come from a long line of people who saw value in what others discarded. My father made a hobby out of collecting buildings that were being torn down, offering to take them down for free if he could keep the materials and reconstruct on the family ranch. I got started making birdhouses and Adirondack chairs from barn wood back in the 90s. Today, I make scarves and other accessories from cashmere sweaters I pick up at thrift stores. Each scarf is silky-soft and is as practical as it is stylish. It takes about an hour for me to make a scarf. I start by hand washing each sweater, sun drying them, and then picking colors. I cut out the pieces for each scarf and hand-crochet them together. To finish, I crochet around all the edges for an accent.
