For those of you who have been following my blog...I am going to be Grammy.
This life altering event is much anticipated and I have put a lot of thought into what kind of grammy that I might be. I would like to be seen as a resource for help when needed or desired, caring for and supporting the family in a variety of ways.
I want to indulge.
Knitting sweaters, buying shoes, paying for lessons, exploring the arts and sports.
Babysitting, yes please!
I cannot fully imagine what my role will look like, suffice to say, I hope to be involved in a positive way.
Not stern or overbearing or too opinionated...rather kind, gentle, approachable, flexible.
Debbie Bliss is a talented knitter and designer from the UK.
I love her patterns and the books are chock full of dreamy looking wee ones wearing all the wondeful knits.
Pink for a girl...this yarn is sumptuous...cashmerino aran. Feels like silk and cashmere, and this blush pink is heavenly....oh if it is a girl!
Blue for a boy...and cuddly soft.
Hooray for a boy!
Behold this simple little pullover...
Grammy is casting on...and will be knitting one in each colour.
I will be prepared.
I do not think any amount of thought can really prepare one for the overwhelming joy that accompanies the birth of a grandchild.
I am excited!
I would so love to hear from any grammies who might be reading this post.
