Today’s crochet quote is the start of a lovely story by beanie crocheter Tom Clark who shared it in the book 10 Secrets of the LaidBack Knitters.

“After the meals were served and the dishes were done, Grandma Amy would sit quietly by the big living-room window that looked out over a rolling green pasture and work on her crocheting. She always seemed so happy and peaceful working with her yarns.”

Did your grandmother crochet?

  1. My Grandmother (the one I knew) did. I learned from her, but I don’t have any specific memory of being taught.

      @dgou It’s funny how some people have really clear memories of it and others just have vaguer recollections.
