Just as a little update here my son with his new recycled messenger bag.
But I also like to talk about a very sad creature that was given to me for repair. It's my friend's qiviut cowl that she got quite some time ago from her dad. Now, you will see at first sight that this is a creature close to death. On this one side there are 13 wholes (marked with blue circles). It's not as bad on the other side but still bad enough with wholes not only in the stocking stitch sections, but also in the lace bits. One wonders if it makes sense to do anything other than open it up and use it again, but, as it is in life, it's not always about practicalities or perfect beauty. So I will do my best and mend the patient. Let's start with opening up the top a couple of rounds to get some yarn for darning... I will let you know how it goes in my next post.
