So, I got home a little early yesterday, and started working on a new project. Earlier in the day while blog hopping I ran across a tutorial for fingerless mitts which linked me here to Finny and got me to thinking. Basically these gals had taken a recycled sweater and turned the old sleeves into new fingerless mitts. Finny went a step further dissecting her sweater into different projects. I remembered that I had an old felted cable sweater that I used to made some woolen longies sitting in my stash pile. And so, I decided to try and make a neckwarmer the easy way! Forget knitting, I used by scissors and my sewing machine to craft one up in minutes!
I started with a full sweater minus the sleeves to make these:
They turned out so cute - sort of buttercream in color. I am thinking about sewing some little sheep on them.
Once I retrieved the sweater shell from the pile, this is what happened:
I wonder how it will look on?
