A new life to an old sweater.
I was given this maroon argyle wool sweater last week. The sweater looked as if it had seen better days. It was stretched out a bit, and a little fuzzy. I like to think that this sweater was someone's favorite, that they wore it dozens of times over many years. Then one day the owner found that the sweater just didn't fit like it used to. So it was given to the second hand shop. That is when the sweater was given to me! I felted the sweater and looked at it a couple of times over the next few days. I was waiting to be inspired! I finally sat down at my sewing machine this weekend to give the sweater a make over.
