Well, my dear sweet little Mom died last week. She was 86 and had lived a great full life. She will be missed by all who knew her.
She was among many things, an excellent knitter. I remember her always knitting something, afghans, sweaters, coats. She was amazing. She tried to teach me how to knit when I was little and many times when I wasn’t so little. I was horrible! It actually wasn’t until I was in my 40’s that I picked up needles again.
The little sweaters she made for all the kids were worn a lot with love. She painted portraits of all her grandkids when they were 3 or 4 years old. One of my kids is wearing a sweater she made in his portrait. How cool is that!
Remember to tell your loved ones how much you love them, they won’t always be around.
Peace and love – Caroline
