don't replace, repair!
in early december i was contacted by a woman who'd been given one of my hats last winter. she said that it was her favorite hat, but her dog had chewed a hole in it and she wondered if i could fix it...
i was thrilled to get such a request! in our disposable culture, too many people would have just tossed the hat in the trash; i am so proud that it was important enough to her to track me down and see what i could do. i told her i'd have to see it, and when i did, i was relieved that the hole wasn't too huge and the hat was made of a mix of yarns so it was fairly easy to find something that would blend in for the repair stitches.
i think my fix is pretty well camouflaged, don't you?
