Knitting with reclaimed yarn

Okay, I seem to be stuck in knit mode currently.  I deconstructed another sweater.
This one was labeled 70% Cotton / 30% Lambs wool. 

This is a look at the amount of yarn I managed to salvage, (roughly 340g ) and the start of my very first sock

and here is the completed sock, now to see if I can actually make its twin

The person who originally owned that sweater will never have dreamed that it would someday morph into socks! What truly magnificent upcycling. Very nice sock!!

Lovely sock. I only see one circular needle to knit your sock. Usually I see five (5!) short double point needles going in all crazy directions. NO...I have never tried to knit socks. Your yarn stash is fabulous and who would have thought it came from recycling sweaters. are multi gifted dear. <3
