Several years ago Carol gave me a sweatshirt that had been altered by an elderly lady by adding a knitted yoke to an ordinary sweat shirt. The purple one is the one I have had several years. At the time, the lady who made it gave Carol handwritten directions for the knitting pattern.
WELL, as it goes, the pattern was misplaced (lost). In doing some cleaning this past year, she found the directions. I typed them up on the computer and decided to try my hand at doing one of these. With a sweat shirt from the thrift shop, I proceeded to cut away the yoke and knit a replacement. The picture of the gray one was made last year.
This year I came across another sweat shirt from the thrift store. This one was pink, and I got together the pink, white and variegated yarn left-overs to do it. Here is the finished product. A beautiful pink sweater/shirt, all for about $3.00 Hope you like it.
Sorry I haven’t done any posts this year, but with company over New Year’s and a little under the weather since, just haven’t gotten around to it. Will try to be more regular from now on. Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope 2014 will be a happy, healthy, prosperous year for you.
