Knitting for Grandkids

When I knit for my Grandchildren, I hope they will want to wear the clothes I make for them.  This means that the clothing needs to be comfortable, durable, and appealing to the wearer.  (It also means that, for the parents, the clothing must be able to be washed and dried by machine.) And, as well, I need to be able to enjoy the knitting process. This is a tall order but I have found a yarn that fulfills all our needs – Spud and Chloe sweater yarn. I also rely on my two favourite designers of knitted wear for children, Jil Eaton and Debbie Bliss.

Welcome to GoTo Grandma

Recipes, Stories, Crafts, Adventures and Knitting to share with Grandchildren.

I’m a retired children’s librarian and a full-time Grandma to four active, curious, energetic and creative Grandchildren.  In this blog I will report on the many adventures and projects we enjoy together and we’ll share with you the best practices we learn along the way.
