I remember that my grandmother didn’t do crochet but she liked to sew.  Nevertheless, when I was little I would see while traveling in the countryside some women who would spend their time creating lovely fabrics while speaking about anything and everything. I had a neighbour when I was little whose grandmother loved doing things like in the picture. She did lots of round fabrics for the tables, little tables, sleep tables. It was awesome.

Do you have a grandma who likes still doing this, or do you like doing it yourself? I did a nice cape for my mother in crochet and also a dress in wool long ago, i was just 18 and would go visit a woman in a shop who sold wool and all kinds of tools for crochet. It was very relaxing!

Recuerdo que a m abuela no le gustaba hacer punto pero si coser. Sin embargo, cuando era pequeña, yo solía ver en el campo algunas mujers que pasaban su tiempo creando tejidos muy hermosos mientras hablaban de todo y de nada. Tenía una vecina cuando era una cría a cuya abuela le encantaba hacer cosas como en la fotografía. Hacía montones de telas así, para la mesa, para las mesillas, las mesitas de noche. Increíble.

Vuestra abuela hace este tipo de punto? O vosotras? Yo hice una capa en ganchillo para mi madre y también me hice un vestido de lana hace tiempo, tendría unos 18 años. Iba a visitar a una mujer que tenía una tienda de lanas y toda clase de  útiles para hacer punto. Era realmente relajante!

  1. Oh yes, I do crochet. I also find it very relaxing and after finishing a project I feel almost empty, I feel the need to crochet! Mostly I do small things. Little amigurumidolls, flower broches and such. I'd like to crochet a top or similar some time, but I never seem to dare! I knit it instead...


Oh Thanks for your comment! Swell!
