Too Young To Remember

There are those who accuse me of being too old to remember everything that I'm supposed to remember.  This is a case of me being too young to remember something. 

 Did a newborn Lenora ever wear this?  Unless a photo can be located, I may never know.   If it did, I was too young for the memory to set within my neurons.

It is a classic crocheted newborn jacket and bonnet.  The stitches are delicate and perfect.  Time can not diminish the beauty of a loving hands creation.

Here is a close up of the stitches with the embroidery dancing down the stitches.  Be sure to click on the photo to get a better look at the workwomanship.   Note the even gauge.  Check out the picots.  Enjoy the little blessing of hand made baby wear.

I sure hope that I did wear this.  It would be an honor to be a part of this family heirloom.


  1. What a great story. I think finding your mother's crochet hook is priceless. Think of holding it as she did. I just love it

  2. Oooo...that baby outfit is truly beautiful. I love that it's lasted all these years and that you have it! It must be yours.
