Jason's Upcycled Cashmere Sweaters - Part 1
Stella is modeling the latest in cashmere sweat gear! Her headband was once the lovely v-neck of one of Jason's now obsolete sweaters, soon to be a baby blanket. Note the pile of cashmere fuzz to the left of her chair on the floor...
The blanket itself will be made of the felted sweaters in 5 inch squares (as seen next to Soren to the left, 74 squares or so, 2 X 3 feet, two sided). I pass the sewing baton on to one of Jason's other crafty friends now, but I'm happy I got to do the cutting!
I have to say it did pain me at first to maim all of those cashmiracles, but in the end I think this will be a much better life for those sweaters than them sitting in mothballs while he basks in Middle East heat.
