I am always so impressed by your knitting skill, as well as your calm willingness to push your skills further. It's inspiring.

Those roses, by the way, are absolutely gorgeous. The perfect shade of pink.


I'm so impressed - you are a very good daughter in-law indeed! I always appreciate your well photographed tutorials - I'm certain that I'll refer to this in the future. Thanks for sharing.

ps - no PBSJ progress, busy weekend.


Wow, what a labor of love! Thank you for posting this--it will indeed be a help to me in my admittedly less ambitious knit mending! Beautiful job.


Excellent job!! I'm really not very good at mending, so I'm particularly impressed. (Hey, knitting I can do, but mending holes, sewing patches? Not so much!) You did a great job--he is going to be so thrilled.


You did such a good job. It's a lovely cardigan, now it has some good years left.


Deb (and everyone), he was very touched, so I was especially pleased. But YOU needn't fear mending either. Now I feel that if you can knit, you can mend. It gets much easier once you've done a hole or two -- kind of like knitting with dpns, after a few rows with that jangle of needles and wool in your hands, it all starts going smoothly.


You are officially DIL of the year! What a wonderful and deeply personal gift.


What a wonderful gift for you fil! I have to admit that I haven't kept anything long enough to see holes.


Oh my gosh!!!! You're a genius!!!!!! That is so awesome. I have a similar problem and I just don't know how to mend it. Damn it.

Hmm, how many sweaters have I thrown out because of moth holes? Your beautuful mending job has inspired me to try it myself.

Your efforts were so loving, I'm sure your father-in-law appreciated it. What a great heart-warming gift.
