Thank you, Grandma!

My new book, Building Blocks, is dedicated to my grandmother who taught me to knit as a young girl.  I can still see her care worn hands guiding me through each stitch.  At 95 years young, Grandma knits daily and shows no signs of slowing down.  At Christmas, I surprised Grandma with the first copy of the book.  My usually stoic grandmother read the dedication with tears streaming down her face.  For me, that was the best gift of all!

You are so right – her tears of joy after reading your dedication is such a blessed gift! Thank you so very much for sharing with all of us this experience and your knowledge and experience of life and knitting. Also, congratulations on the completion and arrival of your new book.
