My Grandma Erna was a terrific knitter. She made all kinds of things and not the awkward, ugly sweaters that grandmas are known for. She was really good and she was a good sport too!
In 1988, I asked her to knit me a Dr. Who scarf. She did. I still have it.
I still have a letter from her telling me all about her progress. I'm posting it here (minus some family gossip) for your amusement. When you read it, you'll know why I laughed out loud all these years later. :)
Here's the pattern my cousin received from the BBC
Here's the note she sent when she mailed me the scarf
Here I am wearing the scarf today. :)
Grandma has been gone for awhile now. I miss her. Thanks for the scarf and all the memories Grandma Erna!
Wow! And I am using the pattern in 2016 to make scarf for my better half.
