As part of my new resolution to keep my knitwear going for longer and reduce waste (although most of it has been going for many years already and was second hand to start with!), I've decided to try my hand at some visible mending.
It's not something I've tried before, and I thought I'd share my first attempt with an old cardigan, in stages!

Replacing Fraying Cuffs
If you'd like to see some other examples of visible repairs, I've started a Pinterest board with some examples I particularly like.
How do you feel about your clothing changing over time, and would you want to see repairs on your clothes ?
Update : I’m now starting to offer a visible mending service- click here for more details!
