Book to Check Out: Second-Time Cool

I found this great book at the library the other day by complete accident. It's called Second-Time Cool: The Art of Chopping Up a Sweater. I've had a few sweaters get washed that weren't supposed to be (not naming names =), but I have a hard time throwing them out or giving them awat. I usually keep them around for crafting, but I as of late, they've just been taking up space. I definitely needed some inspiration. This book has some fun pictures and ideas. The only downside is that it's light on instruction. I was kind of bummed about that at first, but after reading a bit, it kind of got to the point that the sweater sort of dictates the craft. I was skeptical, but come back tomorrow and see how that statement proved to be true.


And yes, I'm probably breaking all kinds of copyright laws. But the pictures were pretty, your honor!

I belive using exerpts from a published work to review it falls under Fair Use. Not that I'm any kind of expert.

It looks quite fun! I might have to check that one out.

That's a bummer about the sweaters. You should be more careful when washing your clothes.

But, without mistakes you wouldn't have great books like these.

ha-ha, Happy Clown. Just remember who does your laundry. I can easily make things pink.
