This is a little ring I made using a piece of felted cashmere and an orphan vintage earring. The “petals” of the flower are hinged in the center, so they’re moveable. The ring is soft, stretchy and weirdly cute, so of course I love it.  But I’m wondering … a cashmere ring, is that crazy, cool or none of the above?

But in this case, the “we” is actually me. I’ve been so tempted to try combining various sweaters into a Frankensweater and finally just gave in and did it. The result (above) isn’t awful. In fact, I would wear it. Actually, I will wear it, because it’s not salable.  I don’t have a serger, so the seam edges are unfinished, and that’s not very professional looking.

But I like the little details you can do with sweaters that aren’t appropriate for lingerie. Like the funny pockets and the little felt heart on the sleeve.  


Yes, it’s a cliche. But remember, this is an experimental sweater. And then there’s the back, which could use a little more something or other, but what?

Meanwhile, I’m looking for advice on sergers. Suggestions are welcome!
