Luckily CTC has many members who are more than happy to rise to such a challenge. With Judith sussing out the rather unique stitch, Kendra set to work finding the perfect yarn and repairing the blanket. She was able to keep all of the rows and blended in the repairs so expertly that the end result was practically seamless.
Both the little boy and his dad were thrilled with the results: "Kendra did a fantastic job," said the boy's dad. "When I look closely at the blanket, I'm amazed how she repaired the blanket so beautifully. The work was incredible!" Not only was this dad appreciative of the end results, he also expressed how touched he was by the speedy and warm response he received from our CTC members. It was a heartwarming experience for everyone involved.
Below are before and after photos of the blankie and a close-up of the stitch.
