That is so fantastic!! So neat that you were able to do this for the lady. I'm sure she will be thrilled to have such a nice replacement since her original is ruined. How fortunate that she had the pattern for you.

What a gorgeous blanket! You really really really did a wonderful job!

Note to self: never take handknits to a dry cleaner!

I've read that the chemicals are very damaging to handknits, but what they did to that family heirloom is a tragedy! Worst case scenario!

It's sooooo nice that you were able to re-create their family heirloom!!!

I'd have been furious with that dry cleaner ruining a family heirloom. She's lucky to have had you!!! You must be her hero for life!

Great job!

How absolutely beautiful your replacement came out!

As for the ruination created by the dry cleaner, there are no words to express my sadness at the loss of an heirloom like that.

But how marvelous that you were able to contribute to their tradition of hand-knitted love to pass down through the generations!

Very beautiful and what a happy ending. I think continuing a heirloom is so special and lives on long after we do. Your work is wonderful.
