Reknit is a service where you can turn an old sweater into something new.
The service is operated via the web, and all you got to do is to send in an old sweater and Reknit will unravel it and use the materials to create a new item.
Each month has a theme during which sweaters are turned into a certain item such as a glove, a hat, a scart, a laptop case etc. At the website you can vote for next months Reknit theme and you can also see a gallery of previously reknitted items.
Reknit is apparently run by a single person whose mother is doing all the knitting. Consequently, they only accept 30 requests per month.
