Super Cool Green Business: Reknit

Super Cool Green Business: Reknit

Knitting is one of those things we really want to learn how to do ... someday. Until then, we buy our scarves and sweaters or ask our craftier friends to make them for us. Now, when we're looking for something knit, we might try a new company we just discovered—Reknit. Here is the concept: send in an old sweater and a real live person will unravel that sweater and knit it into something new.

This month, January, your old sweater will be knit into a scarf for $30, and then shipped back to you.

You can vote on what will be knit next month—.beanie, iPod case, gloves, socks.

The concept is awesome and the website is way simple and charming.

We're sending something in asap. We've got plenty of old sweaters to choose from.
