In other news- fall is coming! Design*Sponge recently did a post on these Leigh Radford's recycled glass covers. I just love the look of them for fall, but I am lacking in the knitting skills. So here is my own idea to copy the look with much less skill--- old sweater sleeves!
1.) take an old sweater and a can or mason jar
2.) cut the sleeve a few inches longer than the jar, making sure that the wrist opening will be at the top of the jar
3.) sew (or staple or glue) the bottom of the sleeve together to make a pocket for the jar
4.) stick the jar in the sleeve pocket and there you go!
Now, I haven't tried this yet, so it may not be foolproof, but if you are in the mood for an experiment and have an old sweater on hand, give it a try and let me know how it goes. I plan to try it when I pull all of my fall sweaters out of storage and decide what can be disposed of. I will be sure to share with you then whether it works or needs a bit of revision.
Happy last two weeks of summer!!
