The Grandmother

Six months ago I saw this cane rocking chair in a shop and purchased it
I often wondered what I was going to make with it
Well last week I decided it was going to be a Grandmother wearing a shawl and knitting
It is a large project, measuring 15 inches high, and took a lot of pure New Zealand wool
I do hope you like it, I think it is rather cool

love and  light  Marie

  3. Wonderful! I love what a large-scale project this is, and that she is working on an actual little knitting project! I still look at my woman in a rocking chair you sent me and dream of relaxing days ahead on the back porch!

  5. Beautiful x

    Coincidentally I bought some small cane chairs from a charity shop recently and was thinking of needle felting some figures to sit on them.

  6. Love your Grandma!
    Made me miss mine, that's how I always remember her, on a rocking chair, knitting something for one of her 50 grandchildren. Like yours, she was a Grandma from a fairy tale.

  10. Lovely! It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: "Winter on her head, eternal spring in her heart."

  11. She's perfect. Just perfect. She reminds me of a doll I made a while back called Nonna Gaia. Take care.

  15. This is lovely!

    Although you don't know me I have been following along and thinking of you as so many are hurt by the wild climate changes.

    Hoping you are well. I come to you through my friend Beth's blog Acorn Pies. You and of course Beth, are great inspirations to so many.

    All joys,
