T.’s grandma is making a shawl. she can’t read and doesn’t know the name of the stiches she uses and yet she’s great at crocheting. this beautiful pot holder is another addition to my vintage pot holder image collection.

and here is another beautiful pot holder by Rita.

  1. yes it is beautiful
    and over here, in Brittany, there are still some elderly ladies who crocheted with a tiny tiny hook, making beauties and never “reading” a pattern.
    i love these hands, and the blanket, on the photo. it feels (to me) very powerful.

    1. yes, T’s grandma also does fine crocheting and it amazes me how she can do it without reading a pattern. i guess it’s more instinctive that way. i also love her hands at work. and the light in her house. it’s so different than any other house, i can’t explain it.
