My favorite material is cashmere (who doesn’t love cashmere, right?) and last night I pulled some sweaters from the stash and got busy.
|Doesn’t this wool pile look heavenly? Makes me want to dive in and start cutting!|
I have been seeing these cowl type, aka infinity, scarves everywhere and I thought that they are really cute and versatile.
I tried two of these scarves. I didn’t make them nearly as long as the Payless ones, those go clear down to my knees when not doubled up. The first one was easy. I chose a XXL sweater. It was HUGE! I had bought it just to tramp around the house in but it was so large that it was uncomfortable. I cut a strip right through the middle of the sweater, horizontally. Done!
|I think that this would be cute over a tank and under a jacket.|
The second one was made from blocks of this blue cashmere (above) and from a tan sweater. I cut rectangles of various lengths. I randomly alternated lengths and kept the color pattern opposite. Since I didn’t feel like hauling out the sewing machine, I hand sewed the squares together. I’m sure that this wasn’t any faster or slower than machine sewing. And, I did it while watching Cougar Town so it was all good!
|Gaaa! I don’t like this photo at all! But it was the third try and it just wasn’t getting any better. I do love the scarf though….|
I’m going to find some linky parties. Check out my Linky Party page to see where the parties
