#25 Creating a Crochet Heirloom & Caring for the Ones You Have

What special crochet heirloom do you have in your life?

I bet every single one of us has a special project that comes to mind when we hear the phrase “crochet heirloom”, whether it be something we made or something we received. For me, the act of giving a handmade item is very special. It’s how you say “thank you”, “I love you”, “your very special to me” and everything in between. It’s a powerful way to express yourself and your feelings toward the recipient.

I had the pleasure of meeting Amy from Yarn Valet at Stitches South a few years ago and we’ve stayed connected ever since. She’s one of the nicest and genuine people I know! I asked Amy to be a guest on the show and when asked, she jumped at the opportunity to talk about crochet heirlooms – how to choose a project, how to choose the yarn and how to care for your precious items. She even shares a few stories with us about some heirlooms that are in her family!
