That's the same weave as their vicuna tie... it's the right color too...
good call! yeah it's that good color!
btw, i know this just came up, but i don't think that's a traditional herringbone... is that what is considered a chevron weave?
That tie has a different label though.
Find that content tag!!
yep. i use a latch needle which is prob easier for fine gauges, but a crochet hook will work just fine a lot of the time. some folks will steal yarn from the garment which makes color matching straightforward.
fair isle is the same as anything else, just tie the ends to adjacent floats. i would def try to save a good fair isle in any case.
the other way of thinking about this is to make an obvious repair and sell it as "mojo". i've got a sick PRL navajo hand knit that needs this treatment. i ain't gonna pass on that cause of a few holes. maybe i'll post the repair.
felting/shrinkage, on the other hand, is irreversible. i think it all depends on what you've got, whether it's worth the effort.
Please don't tell me that the only time they use that label, is when it's Vicuna... Please tell me they use it on their cashmere ties as well... Otherwise, I may have screwed up, big time...
No content tag anywhere on this thing!
Interesting find in that this concert never happened. A couple of hours before the show the stage collapsed, killing a worker. I'm gonna vacuum seal this bad boy and break it out in forty years.
Well today is a great day. "Why" you ask? Because I was able to use two dumb and dumber memes on the same motherfuckin day
Desperate to return the alligator bag I searched the store for TOO LONG... Squeezing past groups of kids talking about what they want to be for Hallowe'en. I nearly walked out with nothing but thought I'd do a quick check of sportcoats and I found this wretched thing:
It even has an extra button in the original etro paper pouch...
Congrats Dalton! Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you guys when you were in town. I ran into turkey sandwich today, he's a really nice guy... With common projects in his basket
