Make do and mend

went to the Brighton Repair Cafe yesterday as Ross wanted to mend a pair of boots that had split apart at the heel. 

I ended up chatting to Sue Craig (Knitting the Map) and Tom of Holland. He was helping someone darn a sock. 

Ross bought a lovely striped wool jumper in a charity shop on the way home. Sadly 2 moth holes in the front. I was inspired by the ethos of the Repair Cafe, and have just darne the holes. Difficult matching the colours., but after digging in all my yarn stashes the match isn’t too bad. Rather pleased with the result 

I can, of course, only hope to improve. 
I also got a real kick out of helping a teenage girl sew a patch on her jeans whilst learning how to use a machine machine.
