They're starting to throw it around... The "S" word.
I am not ready.I know one person that thinks I'm nearly certifiable for my love of winter.
Sure, I may talk about the temperature, but in the grand scheme, it's no biggie.
The weatherman was getting his chuckels out today stating that, "It's going to warm up today!"
Oh yes. To 12.
Awhile back I bought three felted sweaters. Someone was going to do something with them, but never got around to it. (Sound familiar?) At the time, I liked the idea of felted wool and didn't quite know what to do with them...
Until today. I came across this tutorial, and was hooked. Either my hands are too big, or the sweater too small so I had to make some adjustments.
Rather than using the two sleeves, I used the body of the sweater, being careful to line up the pattern best I could.
My sewing machine would have gagged if I'd tried to feed the sweater through, so I used a decorative (and very functional) blanket stitch in contrasting wool yarn.
I love the fact that I could bring new life to an old sweater.
I'm starting to think I need to have Craft Camps. Come spend a few days. Bring your kids (mine will be here). They can play, we can craft. I'd be happy to teach how to crochet and share my limited sewing ability. Or you have something you want to finish but can't find the time? Bring it up and work on it. The Greg Brady Suite is available.
