Moth Hole Repairs

I was devastated to find numerous large, gaping moth holes in my Celes shawl.  I didn't take pictures of the damage before I set about trying to repair it with some extra yarn, a tapestry needle, and zero know-how.  I really just faked my way through this, trying to secure the loose ends and simulate the eyelets of the lace as best as I could. 
Up close, my fixes aren't pretty to look at, but I have found when I wear the shawl I can't see them at all, it takes ages to even find the spots where the holes were.  I also reblocked my shawl when I was done fixing it, and it is almost as good as new....
