London, United K...
I created this jumper a few years ago and I used to wear it a lot until I went to my, at the time, local laundrette on Dalston Kingsland Road, London. Viscose wool dries very quickly which didn’t prevent me from putting this jumper in the water extractor. For some reasons still unknown today, the machine started to move dangerously away from its stand. The laundry attendant stopped the catastrophe in-extremis. When he opened the lid of the extractor, my jumper was in a pitiful state. Two Half sleeves were literally ‘eaten away’; the front rib was in a mash. I felt really bad mainly because I thought I wouldn’t have enough wool (and the energy) to repair it.
I finally repaired it, picking up the surviving stitches and recomposed what was destroyed. I just had the exact amount of wool to complete the job. I knitted the burgundy cord to adorn the ribbing and to hide the ‘wild salvage’
