Q&A with Aunt Lili

maja.s. asked:
I love this old lopa peysa... great colors. I have cut one old sweater apart and made it into 2 sofa cushions: I backed it with a piece of felted woolen material, into which I also sewed the zipper, then I just machine stitched the piece of knitted sweater together with the backing. Great way to keep using an outdated sweater that you still love but would not wear!! :)
Aunt Lili answered:
Thank you Maja! If I can't rescue my lopapeysa I may do just that. The back of the armhole is a difficult patch. And now that I've seen how Ragga uses short rows to eliminate that extra fabric across the top of the chest, I may just make myself an improved copy.
ceramicjo1967 asked:
Did you make this one as well? It is very pretty.
Aunt Lili answered:
Yes. I'm just looking for ribbon to finish it off and then I will post pictures.
