I love turning sweaters into cardigans - In fact, I think it might be turning into an obsession.  This is my latest transformation.  I liked the sweater as a slightly oversized boyfriend style, but I love it as a romantic cardi edged in ecru eyelet.  I predict that this will get a lot of use as the weather becomes chilly!

I love it! Can wear it dressed up or with jean. Great job, thanks for the inspiration. Do you have anymore that you have done? I would love to see them.
