Page 51: The zigzag afghan
Readers have told me they enjoy seeing photos of events mentioned in the book, such as this moment from page 64. In the coming weeks I will try to post more of these moments/artifacts.
In this post I’d like to show you the zigzag afghan mentioned on page 51. “After washing dinner dishes, I curled into the couch, cocooning myself in an afghan my grandmother crocheted for me when I was a teen. The bold zigzag pattern and bright rainbow-colored yarn clashed with our forest green couch and the muted colors in our home. Still, it was my favorite. I pulled my laptop close and began to read.” Here it is today:
But what I thought you really might enjoy is a much older photo. This photo, from the spring of 1983, was snapped shortly after my grandmother gave the afghan to me. My sister is on the left; she got one, too.
Is there a moment or artifact in the book you’d like to see? Let me know and I’ll see what I can do to post evidence!
