A few years back, I stumbled upon a number of recycled sweater creations and thought “Now that’s something I could do”. The kids are getting older and I’ve been thinking about finding something to keep be busy through the long, non-gardening months here in the Great White North.

Now there’s nothing’s better than supporting our local Thrift stores. Rescuing discarded sweaters that nobody wants and making them into something Fresh Again! What a great way to spend the next chapter in my life! …… And to be so lucky to find cashmere, so luxurious and soft against your skin!
