Norah’s Knits: Knitting for Great Grandma
Occasionally, we receive a letter asking why we don’t design more for woman of a certain age , implying (or just coming out and saying) that our patterns are only for the young. The letter might mention an age of 55 or 60. This question always makes me think of Mom. She’s 80 something and looks great in quite a few Berroco designs.
Last Spring when Mom came to visit us in New Hampshire I lent her my Aidez and it looked great on her! I wish I had shown some presence of mind and snapped a photo of her in it. I didn’t. Here’s a link to my Ravelry project page with me in it. We did manage to snap a shot of Phoebe in Hume from my Vol 13 at the TNNA trade show in June. (The under layer is a crocheted sweater of her own invention, made in Seduce – sorry, no pattern is available).
So, this has gotten me to thinking. What else might I want to knit for Mom? Here are three patterns I am thinking might be good choices:
I bet Phoebe herself will weigh in with an opinion. What Berroco pattern would you knit for the great grandma in your family?
