Garden Inspired Afghan

I made this afghan for my grandmother, probably 25 years ago.

Grandma’s afghan

I know it had to be that long ago, because my son is 23 and I haven’t picked up a crochet hook since he was born!  This creative outlet of mine has been in the bottle now far too long!

My grandma loved needlework, especially embroidery and knitting.  She taught me to knit, but I always preferred crochet.  She stopped working with the needles when her eyes started failing her – and I have to admit that I can understand her frustration.  The only thing I absolutely hate about growing older is the eyesight challenges.

I hope I can always find a way to see my way!
