what I wore sunday - recycled wool sweater hoodie

It started with one cable knit crew neck sweater and one boiled wool zippered cardigan and became a sweet hoodie with a pointy elf hood. Neither one is felted. I took the body of the sweater to make the hat, using the bottom band for the hood opening. It folds back nicely, so I'm thinking of putting together a tutorial for you. It's on my ever-growing to-do list.

The skirt is new, a wrap skirt from Yana Dee, that I picked up at the Holiday Art Market this weekend. Underneath is another wrap skirt in a soft hand-dyed cotton to keep me warm! And the hat is one that I made from a tutorial in CRAFT magazine. Here's an earlier post with all the details.

Fyn's sporting a little recycled wool elf hat too, made from a felted wool sweater. He need his sunglasses, it was so sunny today!
