Lovely Afghan Seeks Owner

May 15, 2017

OK, this is embarrassing, but I’ve got to ask: Does this afghan look familiar?

This hefty, cozy afghan has been in my house since October for a while, and I can’t for the life of me remember who brought it to me. In response to one of my knitting class notices, a woman contacted me to ask if I could mend an afghan that her late mother had knit.

Sure I can fix it, I replied confidently. She delivered the afghan to my house. I told her that I’d have it mended in a few weeks. She went home. The afghan sat on a table for about a month before I mended the broken seams, wove in a dozen or so ends, and gave it a nice bath and blocking.

When I went to email the owner to let her know her heirloom treasure was fixed, I couldn’t find her contact information. Anywhere.

“Did you check everywhere in your email?” well-meaning friends have asked. “Of course, I did” I shout in frustration reply. I’ve searched and searched and searched. Nothing.

My only consolation — which really isn’t much — is that the afghan owner (Brenda? Barbara?) has lost my contact information, too.

So I’m swallowing my pride and asking for any and all help from knitters and non-knitters alike, here in Newton, Massachusetts, and around the globe. Please share this post and photo and help reunite this beautiful handknit with its family.

Here it is again (just in case you misplaced the first photo) ;-)
