My Momma is the Shiznit!

20131022-224936.jpg

My mom is an avid knitting/crocheting/sewing maven. Joann’s and Michael’s, those stores were built for her. When I was knee high to a grasshopper I used to flip through her pattern books and wonder how she did what she did. She’s a wizard in the crafting arts and now she’s passing her wands down to me!

I’m so proud and excited to have my mom’s knitting needles! She bought these when she was younger than I am now from Woolworth’s of all places (there’s a throw back for the non-youngins in the room). Aren’t they pretty?

Sure they may look any other needle to you but my mom has made countless treasures with these and her hands warmed them for hours on end. I hope half the love and talent she brought to them comes through in my own projects.

Thanks mom!!!! Love you!

How did someone share their love of a craft or hobby with you?

    • Thanks! She’s amazing and I think she thought she’d never share this with me since I never showed an interest until now. I love that we can geek out over yarn together! She’s my best friend, knitting just brings us closer.
