Repair work

Jacy sent her Lizard Ridge Afghan home to be mended last week. There were a couple of holes where the seaming yarn between two squares had broken.

I love the look of mattress stitch seams, but must admit they probably are not strong enough for something that will endure a good amount of stress.

Jacy and her three roommates and their friends use this afghan constantly. I'm glad it's popular and I'm always happy to educate young people on the amazing goodness of wool, but I repaired it using the back-stitch instead of redoing the mattress stitch.

Now we have unseasonably cold temperatures for the next two days and Jacy has her wool afghan back.
