I knit this from a vintage pattern my customer found amongst her grandmother's things. Her grandmother, who passed away 20 years ago, had originally knit this family heirloom. My customer sent it to a dry cleaner and it came back totally destroyed.

Stunning work - what a tragedy for the original(but why would you dry clean something like that - was it wool?)!

What a wonderful thing you have done to replace such a special piece. Though the dry cleaning was not a great idea, it may be that the yarn was just plain rotted after that much time, depending on how it was stored. How very fortunate that the pattern was still aroud.... Kudos to you.....

She's a young, new mother. I told her I'd include the washing instructions when I mail it.
