It may, in fact, be the saddest thing that has ever happened. To anyone. Ever.
I didn't care for detail in this pic, instead I focused (pun intended) on making sure that the big, ugly hole was visible.
So, what else was there for me to do but take up some of my leftover handspun and do my best to mend it as seamlessly as possible?
Below are two pictures of the finished mended section. I dare you to find the fix. Well, ok, you can find it, but it is at least a little difficult. Sadly, the reason for this being visible at all is that the handspun is not 100% even (my first time with this particular blend - includes tencel, etc.). But still happy with how it turned out. And have since spent some time moth-proofing my stash and closet.
After looking at the pictures below, I think you'll agree. The Aeolian is a gorgeous shawl, holes or not!
