I found an 8-qt stainless steel stock pot at Meijer for under $10. Or does it have be enamel finish?

Holy crap, every time you post you blow me away. First of all, for dye pots I have two words: Garage Sales! I found several that way, and didn't pay much at all, one of them was brand new in the box still bubble wrapped. As far as recycling sweaters, I've been to Salvation Army's and secondhand stores, but have never bought a new sweater to recycle. I'm cheap though so I'm usually searching for the under $10 finds. As far as measuring, you could cut a box to a specific length and wrap a yard or so, weigh it and go from there.

Have fun at the game tonight!

OH, sweet find!! Congrats. I frequent TJ Maxx and Marshalls to keep an eye out for a sweater to recycle, but I've yet to find one. Although, I did find a cotton cardi at Goodwill to recycle once. But I like your find much better. :)

Your socks are looking lovely. But I'm confused...I don't remember the pattern being toe up. Are you modifying? Or did I read the pattern wrong? (*blush*) :D

PS: That is infinitely charming for a hubby to knit for his wife. I love it!!! Lucky lucky lady she is...

Cheerio!

I used pickle canning pots to dye on stove for years. They can be used until there's a rust break in the finish. Can easily dye 1 lb of yarn. AND with the rack that normally holds the jars,you can steam set hand painted yarn projects.

I don't know how acurate this would be and it would take a hell of a long time to do, but you could always use a niddy noddy and skein all of it....and take the plunge and skip right to acid dyes! it is sooooooo simple.

Wow, you're so resourceful! Can't wait to see how it all works out. It looks like a tedious project, unravleling the sweater and all. I admire your patience.

I asked the same question about a yarn meter for my spinning a while back and got some very creative responses. The thread on Knitting Help is here in case it helps: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=59610
