When Grannies Go Bad

This was the project over the weekend. Repair a Granny Square afghan knit by a beloved family member. No, not mine, but someone who came to the shop and asked if we do repairs. How could I say no? The problem was not the huge holes and missing double crochets, but all the little ends that were broken and needed knots (yes knots) and weaving in... I was able to match the colors pretty closley and you can (or not) see bottom row is where some big repairs happened. This is just a sampling of the holes and missing bits. Its nice to see an afghan so loved. Now its fixed up and ready to go back home for more lovin' !

WOW - that's a big afghan! I once fixed a couple of "well loved" afghans that had been in a friend's family for years. It's no small task. I'm sure you really made someone's day!
