    Haha – I guess I was reading your mind when I posted about my sweater pillows yesterday! But I didn't do anything with the sleeves – I might have to try something out! Thanks for sharing

    The sweater shoes are very unusual… very good idea. THanks for finding that one… Will have to give that a try.
