Grandmother Made, Modern Style

I never met my grandmother, so I can’t say that I have a box full of any infant heirlooms.  Not a blanket or baby bootie to speak of.  It is a bit sad, really.  There wasn’t a kindly grey-haired woman with starlight mints and butterscotch hard candy in her pocket, rocking in her chair knitting and purling her afternoons away for me.  My best friend’s grandmother didn’t knit.  She chose not to learn, seeing knitting as an antiquated art form.  This lack of knitting in our early years has left my best friend and me feeling as though we’ve been missing something.  The only left for us to do was to teach ourselves to knit.  I can make you and your entire family each a scarf…and that’s about all I can do.  Rectangles are the bulk of my oeuvre.

Those who can do, and those who can’t are thankful for the Danish company Mormor Nu which has come to fill our yarny void with their gorgeous handmade knitted creations.  Did I mention how much I am loving their baby girls’ Hand-knit Dress in Grey?  When knitting and grey combine to create a baby girls’ dress a great combination of old meets new is born.

With delicate detailing and a round neck, this baby girls dress will be the envy of the block and the talk of the town.  And, my favorite part is that Mormor Nu works with independent knitters (most of them grandmothers, seriously!) to create all of their work.

After all these years, I finally have some knitted clothing created by grandmom!  It’s about time.
