This is one of my favorite sweaters. It had, unfortunately, shrunk a little over time and I no longer liked how it hit me at the hips. In fact, it annoyed me greatly. So it was in the pile to go to the thrift store. But..... I couldn't quite part with it. Such a pretty color and nice wool.
Yesterday I had the great idea to turn it into a cardigan. I'm so happy! It was easy, too. I cut it up the middle, added a button at the V-neck point, and put some seam sealer on the raw edges. Voila! I like the cardi even better than the original.
