Last month I was digging around in the sewing room and I found my Grandma's old knitting basket. She passed away while I was in high school, I know that she was sick, but honestly I think she died of a broken heart. After my Grandpa died her health declined very quickly.
There is one special thing that I share with my Grandma though... knitting. I have never had to try very hard at it... learning the stitches and keeping track of the patterns is easy for me and I can pick up a piece of knitting I haven't worked on in years and know right where I need to pick up. I think it must be in my genes. :)
I turned it into a circle-scarf so that I could wear it and carry her with me all the time.
It felt so special to me that I had to share. Does anyone else have something that they share with a relative or loved one? Do you feel like it keeps them close in a way? This was such a happy find. :)
Wishing you all a lovely little day.
