My grandmother passed away in February. She was a brilliant and strong woman. When I was younger I always had hand knitted mittens and socks from both of my grandmothers and they were a great inspiration for me as a knitter.
The night she died we knew it was coming. I was too restless to work on my knitting so I picked up a crochet hook and started crocheting a classic granny square. I had never made one before but I knew how to do it so the square came pretty easily. As I sat there crocheting one square after the other I decided that I would put up a yarnstorm in the memory of my loving grandmother. And so I did.
My grandmother lived in this house since the middle of last century. This is where she raised her children and had her most joyful and hardest times. In her loving memory, I left these granny squares on her fence.
