i heart my sweater shaver
best $1.50 gadget i ever bougt was my remington sweater shaver-at my local thrift. it looked flimsy and cheap, so i was skeptical, but it works like an absolute charm. restores sweaters that have gotten pill-y or fuzzy (which to me looks unkempt and nasty) to pristine newness--really, like they are brand new, never worn. i've restored dozens of sweaters now, coats, scarves, knit and felted hats--amazing. it does take a bit of patience, but i do it while watching tv. anyway, i was just shaving a sweater vest (since it is blizzarding today, here, in the last week of april) and thought i would share.
