Fixing my belongings helps me avoid throwing them out.
Here, while putting off real priorities, I made the function of this weird piece of wood very explicit with some very nice non-flammable paint.
Over the last two months I have steadily worked through my mending pile, some of which has sat waiting for almost three years.
And finally, when I decided to do something really crazy, I stole this sweater and then repaired every single moth-hole by hand. If you want to be sorry you stole something you should spend the entirety of a Jeeves and Wooster DVD box set hand-darning the thing. Phew!
If the fellow this belongs to still wants it, even in its altered state, he is welcome to it.
