Mother's Day Knitting Patterns
Knitting for Mom
Mother's Day is a wonderful holiday because it gives us an excuse to show appreciation for one of the most important people in our worlds, our Mothers. I always advocate knitting for every holiday possible, but I have trouble imagining giving my mother anything other than a hand crafted gift for Mother's Day. In this lens, you will find Mother's Day themed knitting patterns, and those that are designed with moms in mind. There will also be some suggestions for items that would make great gifts for mothers.
The RocketMom's week 3 challenge is focused on Moms. I am not yet a mom, but I will soon be the mom to a puppy. This lens is dedicated to my mother, who I love very much.
