One of the things I can do while riding is knit!!! I often keep a project on the needles just for the purpose of having something to do during trips when my husband is driving. It helps keep me awake and engaged, and that makes him happy :*)
For our trip to Carolina this past week, I pulled out my Aqua Socks to repair. These came off my needles last winter (I can't find that I even blogged about their finish - bad girl!!!!) But when I picked them up from the basket several weeks later to weave in the ends, there was this huge hole in one of them!
Some little critter had found its way into my knitting basket and had itself a feast! Fortunately, I still had some of this yarn, so I was able to rip the stitches out all the way back to the hole, making sure to pick up the stitches on my needles before ripping back....
Then the repair was a simple matter of attaching a new strand of yarn and re-knitting the rows and binding off again.
|Measuring to be sure I get it the same length as the first one|
It is not as pretty or neat as before, but I doubt anyone will ever know except me!
