Grandmas Shawl

 Mom said grandma was a terrible knitter and you never knew where your heels would be in the socks she knit but we have a picture of her wearing this crochet head scarf/shawl as a young married bride. We estimate it to be about 95 years old.  It is still a light yellow color and has one stain on it.  The thread is still strong and the work done with alternating motifs and an edging. All about size 30 cotton thread. I don't recall her teaching me but I remember I could always go to her if I had a problem with my stitches.

  1. What a nice memory to have about a piece of lace you still have. It's wonderful that this shawl is in such good shape.
