Sweater Refashion: Part 3


The last remaining bit of sweater after part 1 and part 2 were complete was just asking to be made into something else.  I wasn’t sure what to make it into at first, so I typed in ‘sweater refashion’ on Pinterest and found this headband, which stuck with me as I continued searching.  Living in the ‘famously hot’ city of Columbia, SC, there isn't often a need for more than just a vest or a coat when I’m out and about since we drive everywhere and generally only have to be outside long enough to walk from the car to the store/restaurant/theater and right back to the car when we leave.  But for the few times each year when it is cold enough to want a head cover, this one will fit the bill – for free!

Sweater Refashion: Part 2


After I finished sweater refashion part 1, my feet were cold so I pulled the sleeves on like socks and walked around wearing the rest of the sweater as a pair of attached socks for the evening – probably not recommended, but I never did trip, so that’s good news.  Other good news: they kept my feet warm!  So I decided that what I would do with the sleeves is make myself a pair of knee-length lounging socks for days I spend a large portion of my time working on projects at home.

Sweater Refashion: Part 1


Happy new year!  We're getting back into the swing of things this week after traveling a lot over the past two weeks to spend time with family for Christmas and New Year's.  I'm now hard at work getting the house clean and starting a major house-wide organizing and simplifying (...meaning getting rid of things we don't need!) project that's way overdue.
