I made this dragon snake bracelet based on a camping weekend with a little friend who was in the first grade. She happened on a piece of skin recently shed by a colorful snake and carried that piece of dead skin around for weeks I am told.
In order to replicate that organic torn skin shape I ripped up a paper towel and used it for a pattern. You can see the natural snake markings in the finished piece along with the unnatural dragon spikes.

Holes happen in knitwear when we love a piece so much that we actually wear it out. Socks are notorious for having holes in them because our feet do so much work for us. This article on TwistCollective offers multiple ways to darn those pesky holes. I love the ingenuity of all of them. The next time I have a hole pop up in my woolies, I’m going to try one of those techniques out!
I make use of duplicate stitch for colorwork but I find it useful for weaving ends on a double sided project. I leave a long tail and duplicate it into the lace making it vanish in plain sight. Alas, I have no patience for repair. I may spend weeks or even a couple of months knitting something but would rather frog the whole thing and make something else than fix a small hole.
