There’s a hole in my sweater; darn it!

I went to put on my 20 (or is it 25?) year old sweater yesterday, and noticed that there was a hole in the front. (I can’t remember which kiddo was the infant when I knitted this sweater for myself. I just remember that it was naptime knitting.)

Darn it.

Why yes, I did. I didn’t have exactly the same color, but this is reasonably close. I duplicate stitched over the adjacent stitches and the one broken stitch. I think it looks pretty decent.

This post is for Deborah, who was asking about repairing holes in knitting.

Now if only someone could repair the hole in our hearts, after the local shopping mall shootings, and the kindergarten shootings in Connecticut. So sad.
