The Sweetheart Sweater


Remember the post about laundry on the line in winter?  This is the sweater I reconstructed for my sweetheart as a Valentine’s Day gift using recycled wool sweaters.  He’s been gifting me wool sweaters whenever he finds them.  He’d given me the grey, ribbed, Henley sweater then mentioned that he liked it and should have kept it.  Sadly I’d already felted it and it had become far too small even for me.  The patterned sweater was a dated but love-worn sweater of his that had become too worn out to wear.  So the challenge was on for me to construct a masculine sweater out of the two sweaters.  And…he liked it.  Yay!  Sewing success for my first reconstructed man’s garment.

    Thanks! I love my serger! So fun and thanks for the sewing tips.

    That was the face he made right after I said, “I’m sorry. You feel really stupid, don’t you.”
