was through my maternal grandmother who died, at a reasonably good age, nearly 20 years ago. I have several photo's of her from the 1950's and 1960's but sadly nothing more recent. I guess she was camera shy? Here she is in 1960:
She was absolutely fabulous. She lived by the seaside and was endlessly patient in whatever we were doing. She was an avid knitter and I remember her making me a fantastic red and white poncho amongst other things. She taught me to knit when I was about 7 or 8 years old and things have developed from there. Though I like to do several different crafts now I still have a fascination with wool and will buy it even when I dont have a specific project in mind or know how much I might need! Crazy huh?!
