I pulled a shawl out of the wardrobe this week as I needed it for part of a costume at school. I spotted a hole in it, and upon closer inspection, it would appear that something has munched its way through two strands of yarn! At this point, I broke out into a cold sweat just thinking about all the other knitted items that are stored alongside this shawl and the damage that might have been done.
Florence was there to lend moral support as I attempted to fix the damage. This weekend, I shall be brave, and armed with a large bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate, I will take everything out and inspect for any further damage. I obviously need to rethink my storage of handknits. How do you look after yours? I will report back at the weekend; if you don't hear from me, I am probably sobbing under a mountain of moth-eaten woollies! Wish me luck! xxx
