Here it is - my response to Katharyn's Earth Day Craft Challenge.
It all starts with a $3.99 sweater I found at our local thrift store.
I removed one whole sleeve and the ribbing end of the other and joined them together.
I stitched up a lengthwise seam, added buttons and button holes and I now have a brand new cowl.
I've been wanting to knit myself one for ages and when Katharyn issued the challenge, I thought maybe it would be a good way to work one for myself. Mission accomplished.
And since I had so much sweater left over, I thought I'd make a pair of matching mittens from the same one.
Happy Earth Day, M
