Grandma's Sweaters Interlocking Loops of Love
by Ellen Matheson Ramp
Family stories matter.
They preserve memories that connect generations. Long ago, elders spoke stories. Some families use pictures, letters, and blogs. This story shows how a Michigan grandmother knit sweaters to preserve memories for her grandchildren in Tennessee.
By knitting sweaters, she captured milestones in her grandchildren's lives that became part of her family's story. Knitters use interlocking loops of love to create beautiful memories. In this story, the children literally wore their stories.
