Over the holidays, I finally finished a poncho for my grandmother in yarn that I purchased at a liquidation sale (locals: it was the sale at Van Dusen). It was great to use all 900 yards, and get it out of my stash. And she loved it!
I didn’t get a photo of my grandma wearing it because the care providers needed to get her name sewn into it first, so I asked my dad to take a photo at the earliest opportunity. These are certainly her colours, and I think exactly what she needed!
Grandma will be 94 this year, and she’s still as witty as ever. It’s hard not being able to visit her just whenever I want, but at least she can imagine I’m with her whenever she’s wearing the poncho.
