Wooly sheep sweater

It used to be a simple white sweater. It was boring. So boring! I wanted to get rid of it...but I'd also been wanting a graphic sweater. Suddenly everything clicked. I'd get rid of my boring white sweater AND get a new graphic sweater, all in one stroke, with a little creativity and a certain skein of multicolored knitting yarn that I've had for absolutely ever.

I used a latch hook to craft the fluffy body with the yellow, pink, and white portions of the yarn. (If you've ever made a hooked rug before, doing it on a sweater is quite an interesting new experience!)  Then I embroidered the face and legs with the blue portions of the same yarn and a tapestry needle.

It was hours of tedious labor, but I'm glad that I was able to repurpose one of my many depressingly plain sweaters into something fun and unique!

Here's what it looked like before ...
