Wow!, Great job on fixing your knits.

Lorette

Great job on fixing both of those! I like the contrasting edging on the sweater; you're right, it gives it a more finished appearance.

Good for you - they look great. I have a sweater that I lengthened this summer, but now it flares out too much. Back to the drawing board!

What am I waiting for? I am waiting for you to come fix/tweak my ignored objects!
:-)
So nice that you had the energy, creativity, and time to get your objects done. Your sock looks brand new and the sweater looks pretty cool.

Great repair job on the sock. I love the colourway.

Last night I stayed up till 3:30am knitting new ribbing for 1.75" on a pair of socks of Brian's. They were cotton/wool blend and they had literally ripped to shreds at the top but the socks had no wear at all on the feet after 6 years of wear.

These are my least fave pair of socks I have perhaps ever knit, but I don't give up on something I brought forth into this world. I found some wool/nylon yarn, cut off the ripped part, and knit a bit o'rib. Threw 'em in the wash when I went to bed.

When I woke up Brian had gone to work. He'd dried the load and was wearing that very pair to work. I guess that was a good way to spend a few hours!

Yikes, I thought hand made socks should last forever, Especially Koigu! It looks good, though,

My hat off to you!! The sweater looks great, I have been working on one of these for so long I am embarassed to tell you. I was searching for help online and found you. It is beautiful, I'm afraid mine is about to be frogged and turn into something else...
