On second thoughts,….

When I bought the grey sweater I altered in Mixing It Up, I also got a purple and a turquoise (I think it was Buy 2, Get 1 Free).

Last year, I attacked the purple one with my shears, cutting the V-neck into a scoop neckline, and cutting off the cuffs.

I used a turquoise knit from the nightmare pile stash to finish off the neckline, and make some extra long cuffs (knuckle length). Inspired by a sweater I bought a while ago, I also added a star on the back. It was much easier than I expected – I thought the sweater would stretch, but I used some knit interfacing inside and sewed with a wide zig-zag and it was fine.

So, fast forward to this winter, and I realized that I’m rarely cold enough to wear a long sleeved sweater. Time to get the shears out again!











Yep, definitely more useful for me!
