When Thor and I went to my daughter’s house for for Thanksgiving, I brought the two gifts I made for the grandchildren: a mitered square afghan for Grandson O and a granny square afghan for Granddaughter F. As I gave them their blankets, I said that that as I couldn’t tuck them into bed each night to think of their blanket as Mormors Klem (Grandma’s Hug).
Last night my daughter told me that each night when she tucks each child into bed, she tucks the blanket around them as a “klem fra Mormor” (hug from grandma). The grandchildren love that, and my daughter thinks they are the sweetest gifts I’ve made the children.
I think every knitter, crocheter and weaver hopes that her/his hand creations will be treasured by their recipient. These afghans, it seems, hit that mark.
What treasures that you’ve made for loved ones have “hit that mark?!”
