This weekend I decided to challenge myself to make a project for Whiplash. The assignment was yarn and at once my mind was racing. I love to knit and there are many an unfinished project sitting around the house but I knew that I would not have the time to start/finish a knitting project in four days. My next challenge was to think of something quick and fun to do and then I remembered a few wool sweaters I had sitting around ready to go to Goodwill. I decided to try and transform one of them seeing that the sweaters are made of wool/yarn. This is the result.
First I started with a 100% wool pull over and felted it in the washer and dryer.
I then cut the neck and front open to make a cardigan and embellished it with a bit of leftover fabric.
It was a lot of fun and I truly enjoy the end result.
