I was fixing the sleeves of an old jacket today, at least one sleeve, I kept the other one for tomorrow :) I had a look for the technique at my Thérèse de Dillmont book (my bible:) and they call it 'Swiss darning'; in the example above you can see how to fix a hole in a knitted cloth, which was fortunately not the case with me, I only had to reinforce the stitches.
Tomorrow I will use more shades of brown to make the darning look a bit like a landscape.
an awesome technique to repair socks.
the one on the front is a frog; cool :)
I'm hooked on Milk Oolong lately.
