Ugly Christmas Sweater

I have been commissioned to make an ugly Christmas sweater for a party/contest of a friend.

Originally I was going to do everything from scratch, and then realized I was crazy had too many other things to do.

I bought the sweater at Goodwill, and I knit the trim. It's red/green eyelash yarn with regular red yarn mixed in. I stitched that to the pre-existing neckline and wrist cuffs.

I have yet to decide if I want to sew puffballs down as "snowflakes" on the sleeves, or trace white ones out of felt. And then I will have a reindeer on the front. I'm thinking this guy.

A nice, lighthearted project that is minimal effort. Just what I need. :)
