These granny squares (shown here) were my very first ones, made in the Spring 2008, from discontinued wool.
As an adult, I had always wanted to crochet, but the only woman (my great grandmother) in the family who could, died when I was 8. From her, I inherited her portrait, a beautiful crochet hook, and a wonderful handmade lace tablecloth.
I didn't think I could learn it from a book, but the blog community gave me the nerve to do so, and today once again my motivation to join these squares together (something I had never done before & I was so reluctant !) comes from the blogging world, comes from this blog.
It is a very simple small blanket with its imperfections, but you see, it means so much to me : it means I can do it if I really want to.
My daughter turned 10 one week ago, and she found it amongst her birthday gifts. It HAD TO be.
She knows the story and she cares. I guess this is one of these old-fashioned values I want to pass on to the next generation.
Basically, what I'd like to say is : thank you, ladies, for your support ! Now I feel ready to work on another blanket...
