Childhood Memories

Did your Grandma make one of these? My brother had one & I had this one. Recently my mum cleaned out her linen cupboard & found it.
I love it, mostly because my late Grandmother made it, but also it kinda looks funky...... Now for winter to return so we can use it!

Dont forget to tell me your favourite funny movie moment in my previous post!! :D

We've had a few of those, both nanna and mum knitted them.

I have a couple of blankets that look very similar to yours. A friend of my Nanna's made them about 30 years ago. They are still in pretty good condition.

My grandmother didn't but her sister and my great grandmother did. We have a few baby clothes that my great grandmother made as well.

Those blankets are the best. We love them so much we even got a couple at an auction to add to what we have. They're so warm.

My Grandma knitted beautiful jumpers. I'm sure my Mum has kept a few of the cutest ones. I have one left that she knitted before she died (that still fits) and I treasure it greatly. The only other thing I can think of is the sheepskins we all had, not exactly airlooms, but they followed us around well into our teens...

My great-aunt knitted one for my little girl and it's so special to us! We hope to have it for a long time. I am inspired and encouraged to see that you still have yours!

We didn't have these woollen ones, but we had patchwork quilts which my Gran made; I loved those. Oh I miss her! :(
