Emergency surgery for fingerless mittens!

My dad and I are working hard this week to complete a few construction projects while he's in town visiting from North Carolina.

Transforming my back patio into a screened-in back porch was on our to-do list this past weekend. We made good progress, but the fingerless gloves I was wearing hit a major snag. Literally. I caught the bind off on a piece of wood and ripped out about 3 inches of it. These are my favorite gloves!!! This was a crisis of epic proportions!!!

Luckily, Doc Kerin was on hand to diagnose the problem and perform the necessary procedure. She picked up all the dropped stitches for me and prescribed some Palette in Asphalt Heather . Now all I have to do is bind off again and weave in the ends, and my gloves will be better than new. Whew!

Very nice job on the emergency procedure - that glove looks as good new! I didn't realize it was a repair until I read your post.
That is going to be a nice porch in the summer - I can imagine sitting in a two seater swing while knitting and enjoying fresh summer air.
