I put it aside thinking that it would be cut up into scraps and used for another sweater blanket one of these days.
I changed my mind recently and cut it short making it into a tunic. I love that I have another sweater to take the chill off this winter. I don't know why I didn't think about doing this earlier? Possibly, it was my aversion to mending and alterations in general. I'm just glad I didn't cut it up for scraps.
