Remember back in November when I had some holes in an old sweater? And I hated the idea of shopping so much that I decided to embroider over the things instead of buying a new sweater (you can follow along on the whole adventure over here if you’re so inclined, scroll down…).
Yeah, well the sweater got another hole (kittens…blame kittens). But once you’re that invested in fixing something, you’re not going to let it go for one more little hole. You’re going to grab the same batch of threads you used last time and stitch on it some more.
And that’s just what I did. That’s what it looked like after round one.
And here’s round two.
I think there will be a round three as well.
The original bits of stitching have held up well over the last few months, so I don’t feel like it’s wasted time. I am, however, running low on these colors and may grab an extra skein of them so that when the next hole inevitably appears, I’m ready to fix it too.
