At the end of this podcast I show you how I am cutting apart my Ice Shanty sweater and making it longer. I would not have had the courage to attempt this if not for Carol Feller’s Craftsy class, Sweater Surgery. I also used theCraftsy class, Seaming Handknits which was a great help sewing this crazy sweater together!
