A Family Tradition
Created By: Diana Pulido

My Mom thought my how to crochet when I was five or six, she also thought me how to knit when I was a little older. I did not know it at the time but she was doing alot more than teaching me a skill. She was passing on a family tradition and she was showing me how much she loved me. I think back at all the things she made for me over the years and feel her love. Just wearing something she made reminds me of that and makes me feel warmer than anything store bought. I thaught my kids how to crochet (one girl, two boys) and it does not matter what it was that we made what mattered is that we made it together. All my kids have blankets I made for them,y use them every night eventhough we live in Florida and my youngest is sixteen. I know that they are not useing them to keep warm thay are useing them to feel love. I am teaching my daughter how to knit which is know extra special to me because my mom passed. My Mom loved to knit (I liked to crochet more.) She knited till the end I have the her last unfinished project. When my daughter asked me to teach her how to knit I realised how special the time I spent with my Mom crocheting and kniting was. I cherish all the thing I have that were Hand made by other family memebers. They make me feel conected to them eventhough I did not know them. I can see my daughter in the future teaching her childern how to knit and crochet and telling them how I tought her and how my mother tought me and how it is all part of our families tradition. I will keep crocheting and kniting till I die because I can't imagin no tdoing it.
