My mom gave me ALL her knitting needles and crochet needles yesterday!
It was both a wonderful, yet bittersweet moment.
Wonderful, because she has soooooooo many different sizes, lengths, styles, etc - I don't know where to put them all - any suggestions as to how to keep them in some kind of order? Most pairs were rubberbanded together, but the rubberbands are so old and dried out now, that I have to actually scrape some of them off the needles.
The bittersweet, is because that is yet another chapter of her life that is over.
Her hands shake so very badly now, she can't even think about picking up needles to do any work. She will be 80 this Oct. 14th, and her body is going downhill pretty rapidly now.
