granny's crochet

there's something that i really like to do but can't do as much as i would like to - crocheting

there's the thing about the tropical climate that makes crochet products a little irrelevant - i remember making little layettes for my best friend's baby girl and a blanket with little lambs for a baby boy born in the year of the ram - and i'm sure these are stuffed somewhere dark in my friends' respective armoires together with mothballs and old boyfriends' letters.

then, there's the granny, frou-frou factor.

though, what's so bad about all things granny. my granny was my favoritest person in the world.

oh, the repetitiveness of crocheting, how my fingers would ache a little from endless hours of crocheting - it was how i spent my (surprise!) summers in wisconsin when school ended and i got the absolute pleasure of sitting in the (much to my delight!) deserted library or the union with a full view of lake mendota.

these images are tempting me - perhaps black crochets and scalloped ends in velvety cream would work.... ~exp~

Mini, for the price we paid for that bed to accomodate the OZ mattress M brought from Sydney, it better be worth all of us being on that bed at the same time. :-P
