Seventeen years ago today, my father died.. After 42 years working as an electrician and mechanic in the mines, he retired. In the summer he was busy mowing grass and gardening, but when cold weather arrived he was at a loss. You can only read so many hours a day, so he began to crochet afghans. He had learned to crochet watching his mom when he was little. His first efforts were fairly simple but he progressed to more complicated stitches, afghan stitch with cross stitched designs and lace. I recall during a particularly harsh winter, our watching "Roots" while I knitted and he crocheted.
All these years later his afghans continue to warm and comfort me, my children, and my cousins.
