Grandma Jeri Teaching Us About Knitting .... The Gift of Love

Aly wearing the 100 year old hand-knit dress.

Yarn Bombing

Grandma Jeri introduced us to 'Yarn Bombing'.  We are interested in doing this in our woods as well!

Fabric (from long ago) cut and used to make scarves.  

Emma holding both very old and more 'modern' types of needles.  

Grandma Jeri and Alex sharing hand-spun silk yarn that is being made into a scarf.

Hand-spun banana fiber yarn.  We learned that the silk is very strong compared to banana fiber.

Grandma Jeri showing us a dress her great (might need to add another great here) grandma knit 100 years ago!
