I've been having a problem with my t-shirts - I've been getting little holes in the front of them. After a year of angst, last week I figured out the cause - it's a combination of the metal button of my jeans and the stone island bench top in the kitchen. Fabric caught between them just slices like it was butter. I've blamed the washing machine, I've blamed a particular pair of pants that I threw holus-bolus into the wheelie bin in frustration, I've analysed the front of all my trousers again and again for any sign of sharpness, I've literally thought I was going to go mad. The relief I have at knowing what has been causing the holes, and consequently being able to change my habits in the kitchen (especially not leaning in at the bench to wash the dishes while wearing jeans and t-shirt, which is most of the time) is a massive load off my mind.
Some of the t-shirts only have tiny holes and I still wear them, some have bigger holes and are unwearable. Even if the holes are not that noticeable, sometimes I just feel downright daggy knowing there is a hole in the front of my t-shirt. So to make myself feel better I made sure this particular number was completely unwearable. Ever again.
I've started to experiment with sewing with knit fabrics.
And no, I have not in fact gone mad, these are not for me...
