A Knitting Related Business on Etsy

I stumbled on this amazing Etsy artist who works with recycled sweaters.

Kat says on her site "I started making recycled patchwork hoodies 20 years ago, while I was a wee gypsy girl, following the Grateful Dead. Since then my style has evolved and grown into this sweatery madness. I have made thousands of sweaters by now. If you look at my sold listings you can see how they continue to morph and grow with each passing month. My elf coat design even seems to have inspired a little bit of a trend here on etsy. Ooh la la."

The garments are made from thrift store sweaters. She washes them thoroughly before use and uses a serger to make tight seams which are then hand finished. 

What can I say other than WOW!!!
