Jan. 4, 2006

About two weeks ago, I dug through my closet to find my gray cashmere (store-bought) t-shirt. I found it, wore it, but I didn’t notice this until I was just getting ready to wash it.

ARGH!!!! I know what this means…. Bugs! I’ve been fighting (not winning the battle against) an invasive backdoor Trojan on the computer… and now this!!! Those of you who know me, may be acquainted with my sizable stash. These holes mean I have to go through, not only my closets but the entire stash hunting for the critters that chewed on my knitwear. I really had other plans for this week….and month. Death to all bugs!

The sweater has languished on the washer while I tried to decide what to do about it. Today I found this on grumperina's latest post. Check out the Jan. 3 post. As there are two holes though, I wonder if it is worth it? I can imagine myself ever so carefully cutting, kitchener stitching, hand washing, and wearing it again to find new holes. That would really...well, bug me.

I saw Grumperina's post today too -- I'd take it as a sign and try the fix. It's cashmere after all...

Good luck and Happy New Year!
