(no subject)

A while back I posted about my favorite sweater and asked if anybody could ... alter it the neck was falling off, and I wanted a turtleneck on it anyway. People emailed and said it was improbable or unlikely or suggested that i should have a new one made out of Milla's fur, but Emily Rush sent a long email that had mostly nothing to do with sweaters and a lot to do with packing a bug-out-bag for the zombie apocalypse and I knew I'd found my person.

It arrived yesterday and it took 28 hours and a lot of borrowed window units to cool the living room down to the point where I could don it for a 30 second photo shoot, but here it is.

There's some message here about repair > replace, especially when it's your favorite sweater, but I'm not sure how to best articulate it.

If you want to see what Emily does to prepare for the End Times with knitting needles, you can check her out on Ravelry.
