Sweater Story

There is nothing like the smell of wet wool! It was a rainy day today in Minneapolis, and I got caught in it while I was on the phone making my next $16 haircut appointment at the Aveda Institute…

This sweater came from Goodwill in Hopkins last Saturday as I was thrifting for something striped for my Refashion Runway contest! It caused a big discussion at work today too! But one thing for sure – it’s one of the most comfortable sweaters you want to wrap around yourself on a day like today, and if this is the route our weather is taking this year, I am sticking to my decision!

PS. What do you think of the sweater?

Upcycling a Thrifted Cardigan

Remember this number?

It came from Goodwill Outlet along with other thrift/vintage finds. When I saw it, I immediately thought of a DIY I could use this for!

I did share some of the crochet pieces that I was working on with you last Friday, and today I am finally ready to reveal the final product! I hope you like it ๐Ÿ˜‰

After I crocheted all the pieces, it was time to put them on the cardigan. Pinning is the best way to go here ๐Ÿ™‚

And a better view of the back:

And the front:

I promise to publish a separate outfit post featuring this DIY, as soon as the temperatures here drop below 90 degrees ๐Ÿ˜‰
