My maternal grandmother "Nanny" taught...
Created By: Wanda Harris

My maternal grandmother "Nanny" taught me to crochet and to knit when I was a young mother in my 20's. By then she was retired and often came to visit. I completed several projects over the next several years, but then with the hustle and bustle of 5 children, a divorce, going back to college, remarriage (now I had 7 kids)I quit crocheting and knitting. In the last several years I have started doing both. I don't do large projects. In fact for a while all I did was make dishcloths. At first I felt that I really wasn't doing much, but I have given them to friends who love them. I can pick them up watching TV, during breaks at work, and in the car when I am waiting for something or somebody. I have found that simple stitches are a great oppurtunity to say prayers. It calms my soul and relaxes my body. God is so real to me during these calm moments. Best thing is that it reminds me of Nanny who died 5 years ago at the age of 100 and the legacy she past on to me.
