It’s summer here in Australia, a lovely mild one but summer nonetheless. I recently uncovered some moth-eaten sweaters, so here is my first item for Morgan Sin’s Seasonally Inappropriate Knitwear Catalogue 2012!
All the way from Chicago comes this lovely cashmere sweater:
There are few moth holes at the back near the neck. The sleeve cuffs became the opening of weird mittens and I wove some hat elastic around them to keep them on. Then I cut the arms and neck off, cutting underarm to underarm so I had a nice tube. Finally I finished the cut edge with a really short zig-zag stitch that made it ruffle and curl most pleasantly.
Tada! Now I have lovely matching cowl scarf and mittens I’m not going to need for another 6 months.
