I see a pillow or a really cool skirt or felt it and
make patches to put on stuff or you can cut off
the sleeves and have a sleeveless sweater!

If it were me I would chop the sleeves and neck bit off with some scissors trying to make it look neat but scruffyish at the same time and wear it like that with a white shirt underneath and some chords or straight bootleg cut jeans  Smiley

Maybe you would like to have this sweater ?

You could maybe make a purse out of it but cutting off the turtleneck part ang the sleeves. Use the sleeves as handles and the turtleneck can be one of those ear-warming headbands.
That is what I do with all my ugly sweaters.

Just FYI... I merged these two threads.  If anyone feels like a good amount of time has passed and they'd like to try to get some more responses to an old thread, please don't post the same exact thing again.  Instead you can do this:

1. find your old post
2. reply to your post saying something like "bumping this up to see if anyone has any more ideas"

This will bump the thread up to the most recent posts and people who didn't see it before may see it now.  Obviously if you do this every day, it will be annoying but every once in a while is fine.

If you are a knitter you can just unravel the sweater and knit something new or you can make mittens out of it like this http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=tvs5657
I hope this helps.
