Granma’s good intentions

20161208_142425

I finished the two socks! And in good time to be someones Christmas present.

My partner, who’s seen me huff, puff and sigh over these, as well as starting them over , over and over again, said “They’re really nice, but I don’t really see the point”.   (Understood, the point of putting this much effort into something you can buy quite cheaply at the supermarket).

I had no answer. But making them has made me think of all the love innumeral grandmothers have poured into items of this kind. Only to be greeted with a slight sigh, oh thanks Gramma
