1. Duplicate stitch over said hole, unravel excess yarn & carry on. Hope mend doesn't show.
2. Unravel sweater to hole & reknit, watching carefully for 'evidence.'
3. Unravel entire sweater, watching carefully for 'evidence,' wash all yarn and decide which sweater I want to knit.
4. Glare at the offending sweater and wish it would get better by itself. This has so far been my ploy. Sadly, it is not working.
Rav link]. All you really do is knit a rectangle and sew it up, leaving a thumbhole. But for a begininng knitting project, it's about right. I prefer to knit a wee thumb, but this time it's not really about me.
Last evening, Barbara and I went to a chain crafts shop to purchase yarn. We got a nice mix of colors in a collection of tweeds & soloids. I bought myself some Lion Brand Amazing as my class samples. 'Amazing' is Lion Brand's wool-acrylic color change yarn. I don't have the ball band with me, so I can't tell you the color name and number, but it is a lovely orange-copper-red-gold combination that I like very much. I've knit about 2 inches of garter stitch and it looks lovely. I like the fact that they won't be 'matchy-matchy' though I'm not sure our students will appreciate it nearly as much. After my short lecture on the history of knitting and looking at a few samples, casting on begins tomorrow.
