I purchased a bag of threads at an estate sale and there was a spool of elastic thread in there. What/when/where would I use it for? I'm having trouble thinking of an application...of course maybe I just haven't had enough coffee?!?!?!:coffee:

Weave it thru the wrists of sweaters to help keep their shape.
