When I was growing up, I never knew that my mom knew how to crochet. She was always working hard with my dad to run the family business (they owned a small factory in Japan) and she was also very busy taking care of her children (myself being the oldest, we had five wild kids in our household). I had never seen her doing any sort of crafting, including crocheting, back then.
But now that my mom is half retired, she has more time for herself and enjoys making crocheted gifts for her friends and family. Here are more pics.
Our daughter really likes this handmade gift. Thanks, granny, for the grannies!
