I've been deconstructing that sweater I found last weekend.
First, I took some scissors to it and cut up the front to turn it from a pullover into a jacket. I knit up some button bands out of some early handspun I had in my stash.
Then, I thought that since it is a jacket, it needs some pockets. (more on that later).
And there you see my other lucky find last weekend: a free sewing dummy. It has all sorts of moving parts inside so I have to learn how to make it my shape and size.
If nothing else, it's great for photographing things for my blog.
