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


  1. So beautiful! I want to look like her when I grow older. :) Light and warmth to you! ~ Laura

  2. She's an adorable Granny. I love her hair and ofcourse the chair, marvellous!!
    Great idea

    Love, Yvonne

  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!

  4. Beautiful - I love all your work you share with us on here but she really tops it all! Magic :-)

  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.

  7. She is beautiful. And the little knitting lovely.


  8. She is so beautiful Marie!

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

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

  11. Oh Marie, she is so perfect! What a clever idea to have her knitting. You really have no end to your talents!

  12. She's beautiful - absolutely exquisite!

  13. I adore the granny on her chair knitting. Too gorgeous!

  14. 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,

  15. So lovely, Marie! I hope to be that kind of grandma someday. Thank you for sharing. Peace and love to you!
