Great sweater deconstruction: Take 2

About this time last year, I took an old olive toned shetland wool sweater and tore it apart. I over-dyed the skeins I got from it giving me 2 skeins of the original olive tone, 1 skein of a deep rich forest green, and 1 skein of a rustic brick tone.

I wanna try again. This time I have a sweater that has wonderful color, and soft texture, but not such great execution. I can't ever see myself wearing this color as a major part of my wardrobe. maybe a headband, or a flower brooch, but not as a sweater...
