Afghan repair?
I have an Afghan that my grandmother made many, many years ago. It is made up of little knitted (crocheted?) squares linked together. The squares are fine, but a lot of those seams are gone so it is starting to come apart. I know I have local folks who read my LJ and who knit, crochet, sew, and are otherwise crafty. Aside from being cozy, since my grandmother made it (and she died several years ago), it has sentimental value. I'd like to get someone to repair it. I'd be willing to pay for the service - with money, buying dinner, whatever is preferred.

If it's made up of squares joined along the edges, it's almost certainly crocheted - and if it's crocheted, I can almost certainly fix it.

The only issue would be finding a time to get together for me to take a look at it.... :)

I'm leaving on Saturday for two week's vacation, but we could figure it out when I get back. :-)

I can check it out, if nothing else bring it in to our Yarns Guru to get a diagnosis.

Mia is a pro at these things - you should ask her.

I know of at least 2 people who could easily fix it. If you can get it to me, I can see it gets fixed.

Well, I'm leaving on vacation Saturday. But when I get back it sure would be nice to see you sometime.

If you get a chance before you go, leave it with usagijer (assuming he does not protest) and I will fetch it from him. It can probably be done for when you return. :-)

OK. I should see him tomorrow.

Oh crap, that's tomorrow.

I will be in totally great shape for sure.

Eh, it's 20 hours from now, you have time to sober up. :-)
