ANASTASIA'S BOYFRIEND'S BIRTHDAY.

What does one give the boyfriend who doesn't want anything?
This question had been bugging Anastasia for a while.
The boy in question has good taste in knitwear, but she couldn't buy him new pieces because he loved the old ones so much.
Clever Anastasia found her way to PYF, wearing her boyfriend's favourite guernsey, and booked herself a darning lesson. The jersey was seriously holey. Both cuffs had major gashes, the neck was unraveling and there were smaller holes all over the place. We had a very simular 5ply yarn in stock and we got to work, discussing the best ways to tackle the problems, speed weaving the little holes and tackling the big ones. Anastasia took the jumper home and finished the job.
She wrapped the jersey up neatly for the birthday boy, who on opening it, looked very disappointed and said "Did you buy me a new jersey?"
....and then he realised it was his old one and was delighted.
Well done Anastasia.
