All of us in the craft world know that creating can be a time consuming process. I'm wondering, however, if my mom doesn't hold some kind of record.
Before I was born in 1942, she began to knit an afghan. Soon, she became way too busy raising a family and working so the project was put aside. It next appeared 23 years later when she waited at the hospital for my sister to give birth to the first grandchild.
Mom no longer remembers exactly when she finished it, but it continues to grace the home of my sister who often uses it to cover her first great-granddaughter. This precious family treasure has touched five generations.
