Stripey Leftover Sweater
So it sits, unloved, in her drawer. Perhaps her little sister will love it in a few years.
In the meantime, it does look pretty all spread out on the table - and I managed to some serious stash reduction in the process. And the drycleaning lady only charged me $8 to put the zipper in - way worth the shame of bringing it over and admitting my lack of any talent with a sewing machine (or needle, for that matter)
I'm not sure what happened over there, she charged $15 for the last two zippers I gave her - maybe she sees more coming and has defaulted to the bulk discount? )
Anyways, The idea came from Alterknits, which has a gorgeous stripey raglan sweater in it. A very cool book, which I didn't actually buy, but flipped through in my LYS. Am trying very hard to curb the spending, so expect more random stash related ideas in the future.....
