Granny
Created By: Linda Kramer

So young that I don't remember my age my grandmother had me in the "pack house" rolling tobacco twine that had been used to tie tobacco onto sticks. She taught me to knot the string together and make a ball so she could crochet trims for curtains, bedding, and doily's for her friends and family. Somewhere around 7 years old she started me crocheting chains. I would crochet and she would pull them out. I would crochet them over and over and over. It wash't to long before she had me reading patterns and crocheting small things like pot holders and hot pads. We designed so many, never two alike. By the time I was a teenager she had me crocheting sweaters and shawls for myself. I started my first tablecloth at 13 and I remember her telling me, don't worry, you will have it complete by the time you marry! After the tablecloth was complete she helped me to start a "hope chest". In that hope chest I crocheted all sorts of things for my future home. I am now 54 years old, my grandmother passed this past year at 97 and I have all of her supplies and old books from the past. This I charrish daily. My grown daughters have in the past two years become interested in my passion for crocheting and am now enjoying our time we spend together solving problems in different projects. This time to share with my daughters I know they will remember and hopefully share with friends and their future families.

I guess if you ask who has benefited and how, it was me. We have had sweaters, hats, booties, blankets, afghans and so many warm and fuzzy things in our growing up years that were made with total love and compassion. That is priceless!!

Thank you for allowing me to share my wonderful memories of my Granny Hattie B. Hardison from Plymouth, NC.
