About a year ago, I wrote this post about my mom showing me sweaters that she knitted for other people’s babies. I described the sense of loss that I had, and how I just endured her showcasing her work of art for other people. I ended that post with this:
“I don’t now how and when my baby will come, but I believe that when he/she comes, my mother will go crazy with her baby clothes sewing and knitting. I am very sure of that. For now, I’ll hold onto that vision of me and my mom choosing yarn and fabric for my baby until it becomes a reality.”
Here we are one year later. Instead of one baby, now this second-time grandmother-to-be has the task of knitting for her grandson and granddaughter. What a joy to see her show me the yarn that she has picked out, the patterns that she is considering, and the finished products that are ready to be worn by her grand-babies when the time comes.
Knowing my mom, I am sure there are many more to come. 😆
