I do want to show you a couple pics, though. Last night after posting here, I thought that I could whip up a book worm, so I did! Here's a picture of it:
Grace asked if she could just use it as a toy - sure, I knew it would go to her anyway... We had fun showing people the bookworm on the way to school today - the 40-somethings all remembered the bookworm! The little 'I love you' item next to the worm is a crochet I did for my mom a long long time ago - 30 years? When she passed away I found it tucked away in her jewelry box next to a box of my baby teeth - what a treasure!
And here is one more treasure from my mom. She went through a crocheted fruit potholder phase and when she asked me what I wanted I said I wanted a blue strawberry as above. I was into being very non-conformist (my best friend and I would earring shop to find the most bizarre hook earrings we could and then split them and wear multiple different earrings in each ear, 3 or 4 in each hole and then I'd take them out before I walked in the door at home...). But my mom made this beauty for me! I can't remember what other fruit options there were and don't dare google it or I will go down yet another rabbit hole! (But you can!) Fun memories!
HaHa! I found this as the descriptor of the Apocalypse Knits blog - Too funny!
