Miscellaneous Monday
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.

I’m now convinced that the ball of yarn I’ve been using for this project is cursed, so I’m switching to a new one.

If that makes it work, I will eat a couch.

Ah yiss.  There is a curse on some projects.  You will need a dead chicken, a full moon and the willingness to dance naked in the woods to fix it.

One would think I have a fiber fetish.  If not on the needles then I am drawing it.
