My older son will be graduating high school in a couple of months, so I've been thinking about what a financially strapped mother can give him to commemorate this accomplishment.
I've decided I will make him a cookbook of all the recipes of mine that are his favorite foods-- snickerdoodles, macaroni and cheese, shrimp-potato soup, meatloaf, etc. And I am going to crochet an afghan to keep him warm.
During his visit, I asked him what his favorite color is.
"What kind of blue?"
"I don't know. Like my eyes?"
So when I got back to McKinleyville this evening, I stopped in the little yarn shop on Bella Vista Hill to search for yarn the color of my son's eyes.
I found it, and it's the softest lambswool.
So here I go again, crocheting a big project, weaving love, warmth and support into a blanket for my child, now a man.
