Knitting Projects

As many of you know, over the past 12 months, I have become an avid needlepointer. It started as a hobby during COVID lock-down, and now I can’t stop. I love the process (well, actually, sometimes I hate it, but can’t stop) as well as having something tangible when I’m done. It is no surprise that I have the tendency to love creating something with textiles, as my mother has been knitting my entire life. She taught herself during college, and since then, she has a million projects at a time. Mother like daughter, she never sits without a project, and is constantly knitting. She is always running late because she can’t put her knitting down, and I now fully understand why. As a proud daughter, I wanted to share with you all her most recent projects because they are SO different. They are not a sweater or a hat or a scarf, rather they are PILLOWS and a BLANKET. Yes, she knitted pillows! And a blanket!

 

The pillows! Aren’t they divine???

Multiple cherries!

A single cherry!

Up close.

All the stitches.

HOURS upon HOURS of work.

And the blanket!

 

My mother is knitting all of her grandchildren blankets — she has done 4 of them, and we just received our first one (in the Natori family). I love how these are all made with love — the hours, the thought, the labor, the LOVE. Thank you, Nana, for being so talented and creative. We will savor these presents forever.
