Here's the problem. As a crafter, a person who knows the joy of gifting wonderful handmade creations, as well as a knitter who knows the warmth natural fibers can give- I want to give them away. But then you run into size issues. And the whole sticky issue of gifting something that is used. People just don't seem to want a used sweater. So I came up with a solution. As difficult as it was, I cut them up.
*gasp* Ruined cashmere? What are you thinking? Why would you defile a beautiful orange cashmere tee?
Because what girl wouldn't want a 100% cashmere blanket bound by a beautiful vintage sheet to warm her up in those freezing January days?
This was my second attempt to make a gift. The first one, in my favorite color combo of greens, neutrals, and pinks ended up camped out on my recliner. My excuse is the loose binding job I did on my first attempt at backing a quilt. Nobody wanted it, I'm sure. I mean- I didn't ask or anything, but I'm pretty sure this needed to stay out of sight. And warming up my legs...
