I was at my moms house tonight and I took my knitting with me. She told me that my grandmother, who died when my mom was just 15 loved to knit. She then went into another room and brought out a knitting bag/basket thingie!
It is so cool! It had a sweater my mom wore in high school in it, a couple of needles and pattern books!!!
The best part... my mom said I could have it all. I my mom.
Here are a few pictures. I will probably scan the pattern books if anyone is interested. There are some great patterns in them
