Scarf Has Hole In Middle How do I repair?
Last year I knitted a scarf for my 5 year-old niece as a Christmas gift. I used homespun yarn and knitted in garter stich. The scarf is about 30 inches long and about 7 inches wide. She took it to school and a classmate somehow tore a hole in the middle of the scarf which was about two inches around. I gently pulled the "tails" and the hole seems to have become much smaller. One tail is about 6 inches long; the other is about 4 inches long. Now what? Can I somehow weave in the ends and salvage the scarf? I hate to pitch it if it can be repaired somehow. I've decided to be a brave knitter in 2009, so I'm willing to try anything. Also, I have extra yarn in this color and lot if that helps in any way.
Thanks in advance for you help ladies!!

You can probably weave it. Knitty has an excellent article on how to do that and knitting repairs in general here:

If weaving doesn't work there's always duct tape.
