OK, this sweater was a no brainer when I snagged it at a garage sale. It’s H&M, a thicker black knit, and was virtually brand new because the tag was still hanging from it. The only issue…
…a BIG snag leaving half the sleeve open!!
I’m a novice knitter, but the beauty of this piece was that the unraveling happened right on the seam! It just looked way worse than it was, and I knew that an easy hand stitch would make this look brand new.
I started by turning the piece inside out…
…threaded a needle and started to hand stitch both edges together. I sat on the couch, caught up on The Mindy Project, and sewed my piece back together!!
Literally within fifteen minutes, my sweater was looking like I just grabbed it off of the rack!
It was too hot to actually wear this piece out and about today, however I’ve been seeing so many amazing fall/Halloween/rustic themed magazine issues/blog posts/store displays that I wanted to get just a little taste.
I was contemplating heading over to Starbucks for my first seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte, however the 89 degree weather stopped me from thinking about any beverage without ice.
I waited until the evening to try on my piece and for just a moment it felt like fall with a slight breeze coming through my windows!! I’m looking forward to some ankle boots, a little dress, and this topper in about a month when LA finally cools down!
