Way back and wordful Whensday


My mom knits a blanket (we call it the granny-blanky) for all her grandchildren and last Sunday she handed over The Boys'. Below The Little Miss is showing off her brother's. On the left, Little man C's - blocks in turquoise and green and crocheted into a blanket. On the right, Little man L's - knitted in strips with blues and beige and crochet into a blanket with light blue wool.

Little man C and granny ( that is his tired face)

Little man L and gran.

And way back in 2006, The Little Miss ( 16 months old) got hers from granny - purple blocks with a white embroidered flower and white and pink knitted hearts. It is still her comfort blanket when she is sick or cold, tired or upset.


Thanks Grammy!For some more blasts from the past, head over to Cheryl's and play along and if like me, and Angie at 7 Clown circus's Wordful Wednesday you have to "talk" about your photographs, head over there to have a look as well.

  8. Aww that is the sweetest thing ever! What a special granny you have. My boys were given crocheted blankets (by my great aunt) for my baby shower, and they have slept with them every night since. They are their special blankies.

  15. Granny Rocks! They are gorgeous!

    My grandma has crocheted each of her great-grandchildren a wrap/swaddle thing. Lion's was from a new pattern and before she realised what was going on it was big enough to cover a double bed! I loved wrapping us both in it on cold nights to feed!
