Long ago (pre-last-pregnancy and pre-maternity wardrobe) I bought a bunch of sweaters with the idea of embellishing them. I have always leaned towards the simple and so I've worn a lot of unadorned crewneck sweaters. I still do, but I thought it would be fun to do something more with these, and the price was such that it was worth a little gamble. Mind you, I don't usually purchase four at once but don't you just hate it when you find the perfect t-shirt or sweater and regret not buying one in every color? I did leave some colors on the shelf...
It took longer than I planned, but I've finally embellished them all. I originally thought of sewing some ruffles, etc. but ended up knitting or crocheting accessories to go with each of them:
Starting in the upper right, is the Crochet Corsage embellished sweater, then below it, the Belle Scarf embellished sweater, then bottom left, the Country Cowl embellished sweater, and finally, the last in the upper left, the Looped Scarflette embellished sweater.
This Looped Scarflette is the "chic" version of the pattern. Lightweight enough to wear indoors. I love the yarn combination on this! It is Loops & Threads Country Loom in Ocean Tide and Loops & Thread Impeccable in Aqua.
Nice to have finally used this little stash of sweaters as I intended.
