When one is cleaning out the closets in one's attempt to prepare for painting and packing...one finds things that have been put in a "safe" place? (no I didn't find my handknit Plucky cashmere cowl :(((((
You know, now that I think of it...the maker of this afghan is who taught me to crochet all those years ago...
Now I'm not gonna tell you how long either...so don't ask ;)
I love the color combos she chose way back when. (still not telling!)
The "she" was my babysitter. I am the oldest, but my parents had a late in life baby and I surely wasn't old enough to watch us all...
It's had some use over the years, but for the last 15 or so (I think) it's been stored in a "safe" place.
I dunno why I'm worried about it, I'm sure it's Red Heart or some other acrylic, so you know it'll be around for a good long time :)
I don't have a lot of momentos from my childhood, the few I have are dear to me and unearthing them lately brings back some good and sad memories....now to pack them back up and move on :)
