If you’ve ever accidentally felted a wool sweater, you know that “uh-oh” feeling in the pit of your stomach when you pull the poor, shriveled thing out of the dryer.  Oops!  When Rena from The Cheese Thief shrunk a sweater, she found a great way to rescue it, recycling the misshapen garment into a matching hooded infinity scarf and leg warmers.  If you don’t have a felted sweater laying around already, this is just one more reason why you should always be watching for wool at the thrift store!  [how to recycle a sweater into a hooded infinity scarf and leg warmers]
