My knitting heritage

Filed under: Knitting — by bethc @ 3:15 pm

Who is that adorable boy in the amazing handknit? Why it’s Bunny of course… But what, you may ask is he wearing? It’s a beautiful sweater that my Grandmother Isabelle knit for me about 35 years ago.

When I was expecting my mother passed it down and then Friday afternoon Bunny found it in his room. “Look Mama, it’s a sweater. Who made it?” I love that he expect knits to be made, but love even more that he enjoyed wearing it and telling anyone who would listen that “Mommy’s grandma made it for her, now it’s for me!”

Does this mean that he will actually wear the sweater I’m making him? Guess I better get knitting so I can find out!

My grandmother is the one who taught me to knit. She was an amazingly talented woman, knitting, weaving, painting… Although I’m not sure about the whole heaven thing, I do believe that sometimes she’s with me helping me figure something out, or just looking down and smiling at a job well done.
