Grandma used a special "rug hook" which has somehow been lost along the way.
My other grandma crocheted all the time. It was more unusual to walk into her house and not see her crocheting than the other way around. She taught me basic stitches. (If I had been really interested, she would have taught me so much more!)
So, I have combined loves from both of my grandmas and started crocheting rag rugs. I use old t-shirts cut into strips to make mine. I use a basic chain stitch and keep going in a circle.
Below are pics of a couple that I have made.
So, what memories of your grandmas do you have that you can make time for?
Check out We Did It! Wednesday over at Sew Much Ado. Plenty of fun ideas!
