This post is a tribute to my great grandma.  Unfortunately she passed away two years ago at the age of 96.  My grandpap was cleaning out her house and he gave me some of the things that she made.  That was her and my special bond.  She taught my left-handed self how to crochet and so we always had something that no one else took an interest in.  I just wanted to share some of her works with all of you because she was my inspiration. 


I'm awesome. Smiley

I have vintage yarn that I would like to give to someone! Please send a message if you'd like to obtain it.  I have lots!

Your post made me smile through my tears.  My Nana (Great Grandmother) taught MY left handed self how to crochet when I was a little girl too, and she passed away at 96, but many many many years ago (I am old).  In any case, you honor her memory by creating new crochet items.

She made beautiful things.  Crocheting is such a special bond to share with your great grandma/grandma/mom throughout the generations!
