I’ve had this old black granny sweater for twenty years at least. I still love it. The thick cable knit wool keeps me warm on cold winter days and even on mild ones when I’m indoors and sitting still at the computer.
Thank you, God, for the sheep that provided this coat of warmth and for the machines that stitched the yarn together and the hands that packaged it. Some things I don’t ever want to get rid of and this is one of them. Maybe one of my ‘grands’ will want it one day—to remind him or her of me.
I have other treasures to pass on but this is unique because it’s part of me, not just a trinket or a candy dish. I’ve lived in it for years. It has seen me through tough times and good times and everything in between. Some items are just too special to let go of. My old granny sweater is one of them.
Do you have a special article of clothing you can’t let go of? Please share.
