Sweaterpants!

I was cleaning up my studio this morning and came across a bag of wool sweaters I'd bought at a thrift store and then felted in the washing machine, so I decided to whip up a pair of sweaterpants for James. And I made them too big/convertible (I can take out the stitches in the waistband to unfold it and unroll the cuffs), so they should fit him for a while, maybe even until it warms up again in spring!

I used the sweater's sleeves for legs, a piece of the body for the butt panel, and the neck for the waistband. That little patch going the wrong way on the left leg is covering two holes.
