What happens when grand girls have strollers, dolls and doll clothes that get scattered?
Well, this time G'ma G decided to crochet some simple doll clothes bags.
H and M each were so pleased to recognize the first initial of her name on her very own bag. With the light of appreciation shining from each little grand girl face, G'ma G got an unprompted "Thank you, Granma/Gamma!"
Each girl took a doll with a full stroller bag for a stroll around the house. Then M unpacked her stroller bag all over her bedroom floor and abandoned it for other pursuits!
I used some leftover skeins of lovely soft Merino wool I purchased from two different farms in New York over ten years after I moved from New York back to the West coast. Most of the yarn came from Morehouse Farm in Milan, NY. While in New York I lived on the west bank of the Hudson River, about 100 miles north of N.Y. City. During those fourteen years while I experimented with various needlecraft projects, I had no idea that Margrit Lohrer and Albrecht Pichler were creating the wonderful Morehouse Farm just a few miles south of me on the opposite side of the river. Sigh...
So far I have only visited Morehouse Farm through my computer and Margrit's beautiful book, MOREHOUSE FARM Merino Knits, but I am planning a cross country trip for the fall of 2012, and I think it would be great fun to visit their store in person!
Until then, I need to get busy and knit the projects in the two kits I bought from them a few months ago.
Confession: the grand girls are not the only ones who scatter projects around this house...
