That makes Treasia Stepp of Stepp Into My World the lucky lady! Treasia said she likes the pillows people have been making with sweaters; now, if she likes, she can make one herself with her free sweater from Kris.
Coincidentally, I also felted a sweater recently. The problem is, this time around, I didn’t mean to felt it!
I found this Ann Taylor LOFT wool/angora/cashmere hoodie at my consignment outlet for $1. I loved it; it was soft, warm, and pretty.
Then this week I washed it. I had done it before with no problem, but this time I accidentally left the machine on fast agitation, and I guess that’s what did it. It shrunk. I tried to stretch it out when it was wet, but it’s still just a little too small now. Fortunately, I’m not out any money; I certainly got my dollar’s worth out of it.
I’m still hoping I can salvage it somehow…maybe get it wet again and just put it on and wear it to stretch it out? Otherwise, I guess it will go into the sweaters-to-repurpose box.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
