Lockdown Madness.

  1. My mother, who is 86 years old, started this, at the start of lockdown, for something to ‘keep her busy’.
    She has always liked knitting, back from the days when we lived on a farm in the 70’s. We had sheep, and I can remember, as a child, my father would shear them, bring the wool in, and my mother had a spinning wheel, so she would ‘card’ the wool,( get all the fibres going one way, with two special, spiked, handled, ‘cards’, ( you might have to google that), then spin it into balls. Then spin it, make the wool, then make us all jumpers, etc.
    So her fascination came from that.
    She has always wanted to go to Disneyland..,

    Flipping heck that’s brilliant, and to still have the dexterity to do it at 86 is awesome :).

  17. Her eyes aren't great, unfortunately. But she is looking at pics of the Taj Mahal, at the moment.
    She used no patterns. It’s all in her head.
  18. I see patterns in my head as well. But that’s down to the paranoid schizophrenia
