Give that old sweater a new look,freshen it up with this DIY Sweater using Neon Yarn and Pearls
Now the yarn and the hoop might make some of you nauseous ,but trust me I’M A BEGINNER and I did it .Once you are in the game ,you are no longer a rookie .So this DIY Sweater took me one and a half day of course with the daily interruptions, not that bad I guess .

Also this neon color yarn used ,would remind me that spring is the day and winter is bygone.Say Hello to loads of colors and blooms.And Hey!! If you check the close up ,you will realize that I have actually mimicked a flower.
