Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts


Throwback Thursday

Thought I would stick my head back in the door πŸ˜‰

My grandmother – practically everyone called her Muttie – was a huge part of my life growing up. She’s the one who taught me to knit, probably in self defense to keep me occupied, and though I don’t recall seeing her knit very much, she did a lot of crafts, including weaving. I still have her small 2-harness loom. She also taught me to cook, and I continue to learn new things in that field. Tomorrow would have been her 122nd birthday.
