My Blankie

This is my blankie.


My Grandma crocheted it for me long ago. I love this blanket. It was the first thing I packed when I was leaving home. It is big and warm and fuzzy and soft (just like my Grandma). My Grandma knit everyone of her daughters (3 of them), daughter-in-laws (7 of them) and grand-daughters (17 of them) a blanket. I am grand-daughter #16, so I had to wait a while to get mine. I was jealous when my sister got hers, but I knew mine would come in due time, and it did just as my Grandma promised.


My Grandma passed away yesterday.


I cherish this blanket more today then ever before. I know every time I wrap myself in it, it's just like my Grandma is there with me.

I am so sorry. It is nice that you have a blanket made by her to keep you warm and to remember her by. I still have a metal cigar tin with crochet hooks in it that was my grandmothers. I think I have used one or two of the crochet hooks, but for the most part, they are all still in there.

I'm so glad you got to see your grandmother a couple of weeks ago. And I'm glad you have a blanket to hold onto now.

You know we're thinking about you.

So sorry to hear about the passing of your grandmother. You are lucky to have something that she made just for you to cherish and the memory of the anticapation of waiting for her to make it for you. You are in my thoughts.
