A kitschy little collection of potholders and dishcloths I worked up and sent off to Portland to be part of an art installation charity event led by Larissa Brown in conjunction with her new book – My Grandmother’s Knitting: Family Stories and Inspired Knits from Top Designers.
I wasn’t lucky enough to have been taught to knit or crochet as a child, my only crocheting Grandmother died when I was 6. I didn’t learn to crochet or knit until I was alot older and I had to teach myself (from a book) gasp! Even still, the idyllic romance and satifaction of anything handmade calls to my inner grandma, making something so beautifully simple, useful and amazing with just your two hands.
Pattern: Grandma’s Fan Dishcloth form Larissa’s book.
