The second afghan is all done with its repairs. This one was harder to match threads to as I said before it was a strange size of thread. Also this one had a strange color to the thread kind of a gray blue patina. Not sure what it had been washed in, in the past probably liquid blueing which tends to make colors a little weird after ward. This one was washed about 10 times trying to get it clean. Had some weird yellowish stains on it and a few weird orangeish stains. Very pale ones but very annoying to try and get rid of.
