Christmas sweater

Paddy K has talked about a Christmas sweater for years, and i wanted to make him one, but every year the time before Christmas was waaaay to short for me to knit one.

Last year, I came up with the idea of buying a second hand sweater and doing embroidery onto it, but again the time, the time…

So this year ( I mean in time for last Christmas) I figured I would get the sweater and some decorations and sew them on. I found some santa hats, socks, a bow all of it in thrift shops, and set to work.

I was really pleased with my idea and the result. Then a few days before the day, a craft store in stockholm sent home a catalog where you could buy a DIY set for exactly the same thing! Well, at least mine was original.
