On the theme of ‘Make do and Mend’ here is another tip that I use regularly for repairing knitting with needle felting (we have also had some clothes moths which have cause me to do more needle felting this year!)

In this video I show you how to use a clover felting needle, a normal felting needle and some roving to fix a hole in the thumb area of my beloved hand warmers.

Wow this is so useful. Thanks for sharing this video. I have so many holes in my hand warmers so this would come in handy.

You’re welcome! The best thing about the wool roving is that you can buy it in practically any colour so you can either match or contrast your hand warmers. Let me see some pics when you have had a go I’d love to know how you get on 🙂
