Don't throw out that old, mismatched yarn!
If you're Karin Weiner, whose Lion's Share pop-up shop in Red Hook Brooklyn, lured me in with a mannequin in a pickup truck holding a sign promising all kinds of vintage treasures, you'll use these knitting staples to weave up a crafty look in lawn chairs. Karin said that rather than re-strapping with the typical materials, she and her boyfriend went to thrift stores, bought up all the old yarn they could find, and used it "re-weave" this sunny, summer must-have!
Go visit Karin for just few more Saturdays and Sundays on Van Brunt and King, from noon to 7 p.m. And tell her The Elegant Thrifter sent you!
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,
