Heaven’s New Helper

Our family and the knitting/crochet world suffered a big loss this week.

Oma is my step daughter’s grandmother. I got to know her at first from picking up and dropping off my step daughter. We soon learned of our mutual love of anything knitting or crochet. She taught me so much.

One of my favorite memories is when I was trying to learn to knit in the round, a skill she did effortlessly. I was too embarrassed to admit I couldn’t figure out this seemingly easy technique. I finally gave in and almost in tears ask what I was doing wrong. Oma said “Well , let me see you do it”. I started. She gently took my knitting, turned it around so it was facing the other way, and handed it back. She smiled, and said “Now you knit in the round”.

I love you, Oma! Take a rest before you teach the angels a better way to make wings.


Guinea pigs are my obsession. Knitting and crochet are my hobbies. Husband, son, two daughters, and my grandson are my life
