My mom will turn 89 tomorrow.
The picture above is the two of them on Easter. She is knitting this afghan for my daughter.
It is giving her fits. It is not that the pattern is difficult, she just has difficulty completing the actual knitting with her somewhat arthritic hands. Also, the dark navy that my daughter picked makes it hard for her to see the stitches sometimes. Currently, I am frogging about 50 rows of stitching for her because she found a mistake that far back. I marked it with the green stitch marker.
I thought this would be a good week to join Ginny for Yarn Along as I am doing some un-knitting. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to.
As for reading, I am in the midst of The Glass Castle by Jennifer Walls. This is not I a book that I would normally pick up, but it is one of the group of books from the school where I work that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. I am actually finding it quite interesting. It is a glimpse into a way of life that is totally foreign to me. There is poverty (although I don't think the author realized it as a child), homelessness, joy and sorrow. This is a well-written memoir.
Thanks for stopping by!
