Repurposed old sweater

My dad came to visit this week and he brought with him a sweater. He decided it was no longer going to be in his wardrobe so he gave it to me. Well, we are not really sweater people so I decided instead of giving it away we could make a little something useful out of it. So, I was able to make 2 neck gators (these are essential when we are sledding, skiing, snow sporting outside), and I think I can make 2 smaller ones for the kids out of the sleeves. I had Noah model one of the adult sized ones. I am sending them home with my dad since it was his sweater after all and he said he could use them while hunting. However, the sleeves will make great gators for the kids!

How ingenious! I remember the days of neck gators when we went skiing. Simple things that make snowy days so much better! You're so crafty. That's all I can say. Love it!
