Mother's Day honorees

Here's to two of the greatest knitters in my life, Mom and Grandma Monaghan. From Grandma, I learned that knitting no matter the complexity of the pattern is just something you do, and she sure did it well.

From Mom, I have learned that she can do anything her mother did, apparently. I remember that she knitted me a red dress when I was about six and then embroidered, in fuzzy white mohair, some cute flowers on the top front. What a dress that must have been to wear to church the first time!

If I keep knitting, perhaps one day someone will say of me that I knitted as well as my mother.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom, and thanks for modeling the knitting of innumerable thick, lovely sweaters, mittens, hats, scarves, and more.
