It's What I've Been Working on Wednesday!
I fell in love with a recycled wool running sweater jacket in Ewerun's Etsy shop, but alas, it was a size small. No amount of jogging will turn me into a size small ;). I decided to attempt my own, and though it's not nearly as cute, I am pretty happy with it, and it will be great for running.
I used a soft stripey merino for the arms & hood, and a thicker soft gray wool for the body & "hand warmers"... I just added part of the sleeves from the the gray to make them longer. When they are rolled down, they make great hand warmers. When they are rolled up, they are just cuffs. I made the hood a bit elfish looking, and used felted seams to make the drawstring.
When it is zipped all the way, and the drawstrings are tightened, it covers quite a bit of my face.
So, what have you been working on? Feel free to post your finished recycled wool projects on my Facebook page!
