One Amazing Crafter

As I stated in my legacy blog, I come from a long line of crafty women with both of my grandmothers being very handy. Here is one of the crafters I admire most, my mother. I began sewing and cooking with my mom when I was still in elementary school and although she had to give up sewing several years ago due to the loss of her eyesight she has continued to knit.  Here she is knitting a baby blanket for what will be her newest great-granddaughter. 

My mother is totally blind and knits using braille and recorded patterns.  I have yet to learn to knit or crochet so this is an art form I am in awe of and I  am truly amazed by the way she is able to count her stitches and can even recognize when she has dropped stitch.
