Grandma's Knitting

My co-worker greeted me this morning with "I was talking about you this weekend."

"Uh oh!" says I, "To anyone I know?"

"Nope," he replied, "One my buddies asked me if I know anyone who knits. Ordinarily, I'd have to say no...."

I laughed because he shares his hockey stories with me, and I share my knitting tales with him. "So why was your friend asking?"

"Well, he has a pair of gloves and a hat with a hockey logo that his Grandma knit for him and they're wearing out."

"And his grandma has passed?" I asked.

"Yeah. And he'd like to replace them."

How sweet! I handed my co-worker my card, and quoted a low price. Truthfully, I'd be privileged to carry on the tradition of such well-loved grandmotherly knitting.


  1. Yay! Don't let those 'this ain't your granny's knitting' folks hear about it. LOL

  2. Isn't that great that you can help his friend out? It's very nice that he reveres the gift his grandmother made him so much. Good for you!

  3. This is great -- a privilege indeed. I'm looking forward to seeing the originals and your replicas.

  4. That's so sweet! Nice to hear stories of people who appreciate hand knitted items :)

    happy knitting :)

  5. Aw! That is too sweet, you are a kind soul to do something like that.
