I recently ordered a very expensive alpaca wool cable knit sweater for my Mom's birthday. Unfortunately it was too small so I need to return it. It was in the box, ready to return when I noticed my cat poking at it. Seconds later it was on the floor, and to my horror a very long thread was sticking out of the box. The cat clawed at the sweater and pulled one, long thread.
Is this repairable? I don't know that I'm good enough to do it myself... is there anyone in the Central Ohio area that might be interested in helping me out? Any advice?
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
Thank you for the link. I read it, and unfortunately I've already tried what it recommends (it's just a pull, not a tear or hole or break). Unfortunately the pattern is somewhat complicated and I can't seem to figure out how or where to pull the thread back through. Maybe someone more "knit-savvy" would have better luck with it than me. I'll try again, but in the meantime I'm hoping some generous soul lives near me!
