Right at the back of my right armscye, where the underarm graft meets the back, how sad. And yet in another way shows just how much wear this cardigan has had. Still I have a tiny amount of yarn left, and I will try and mend this. The original yarn was a felted yarn, plied but not strong. Already I have repaired the cuffs by knitting them. Owls was knit in January February 2009, so has three years of hard wear. And I have worn and worn this cardigan.
