Community Eye Candy: This Is What Some Grandmothers Knit Like

Posted by oharethey on

It seems like often when I read about knitting and crochet in popular media, the articles highlight that this is not your grandmother’s fiber arts. Which made me ponder, what are grandmothers making? So today’s eye candy is all recently completed projects from grandmas*!

So, it seems like grandmothers like to make whimsical things that make me smile. Clockwise from top: knits-n-purls’ Bow Tie for me, JanRachel’s Mother’s Day Bird House,  HumorMe’s Country Christmas Doily, and margieelisabeth’s Kodi.

Oh wow, some grandparents enjoy making colorful creations! From left: HelenButtercup’s No Purls Allowed, isabella106’s Crocodile Flower, and TaijaK’s Lontoo-sukat.

I am unsurprised that some grandmas make themselves gorgeous sweaters. From left: gurlypurl’s Fly away, fly away home grasshopper, grannyfirefly’s My sweet jane, and PamelaBee’s Professoressa .

I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into what some grandmothers are knitting and crocheting!

*I identified grandparents based on Ravelers who had “grand” in the Pets? Kids? section of their profile.
