Here we are in April and it is still Sweater Weather

The sun has been making a small appearance here and there but it is just not enough for me to ditch my cozy sweaters and wraps. I live in central California and it should be warmer by now. The lack of warmth has me painting my new project a sunny yellow. My etsy searches are full of words like “French”, “yellow” and “blue”. My pinterest searches have been mostly about fruit and positive sayings. I guess I will just have to be patient.

Anyhow, I have been doing a bit of spring cleaning around the house and am in the process of weeding through all my clothing. I have kept plenty of things that are out of style or do not fit because I keep thinking I will make something out of them. This sweater is a good example. I have been holding on to it for, well, I probably shouldn’t say…

This week I ripped the stitches out and cut it up. I made an infinity scarf of sorts. It isn’t a long one that you can double wrap; there just was not enough sweater to do that. I thought about combining another sweater or material with it but did not like anything mixed with it. Here is how it turned out.

Now I can be cozy without overheating and I do not have the sweater taking up room in my house anymore.
