Elbow Patches

I have had the misfortune of being a bit under the weather for the last few days. Enough to stay at home, but not enough to stop me from finishing up a bazillion things. You know those odds and ends that get put lower on the list because you were too busy knitting. Well, I was able to complete several projects I had promised to people. And one project that I needed to do for me. I've worn my sweater so much that the elbows were already getting thin. (Of course I've been wearing it every day except the occasional wash day since I finished it in October) So my sweater now has elbow patches!

My brother commented that he liked the sweater better without patches. I snickered at him and told him it wasn't for fashion, it was for function. I think it's funny that he thinks I might do something because it is fashionable. When has that ever been true?

I like the elbow patches! They remind me of some older intellectual with a pipe - - you should get yourself a pipe and go read some books in that sweater.

I hope you feel better soon!

Love the patch! That means your wearing it vs keeping it in the drawer! :)

The patches are fantastic. How fantastic is it that you wear your lovely knit so much that it is wearing already? Yeah!
