My grandmother has problems with her leg/back, but, being a feisty Italian woman, she refuses to just sit down and relax!! Even when surrounded by all her children and grandchildren, who would gladly wait on her hand and foot, she insists on carrying things around and rearranging furniture and making beds, etc etc. She has really hurt herself recently and it is worrisome.
My evil plan? Get her to sit down by getting her to crochet something! I did learn to crochet from her after all. I think doing a project together would really motivate her to finish something too ^_^
I'm looking for some kind of project that we could do together, perhaps in parts that could be put together at the end. Maybe a really awesome afghan? (something more interesting than just granny squares) I was also considering something like matching sweaters, but it would be hard to find something the both of us would want to wear, lol. Scarf or an amigurumi would be too quick a project--I want something that keeps her sitting for a while!
So--ideas anyone? Links to patterns would be most appreciated too!
