“I can’t believe you put my wool sweater in the wash? And, on the hot cycle.” Familiar words? Many sweaters meet the dreaded fate of being shrunk in the wash. In our house a common issue is the inevitable small pull in the knit – that slowly but surely unravels the entire sweater. So many sweaters meeting a slow and painful end. Well, don’t throw those sweaters in the trash. All is not lost! Save those seemingly useless sweaters and give them a whole new life as beautiful recycled sweater crafts for Christmas.
