My moms hidden talents

What seems like ages ago, I bought a crocheting-needle and some cute yarn when I was in Sweden with my funny friend Louise. Remember? 
I never got the hang of crocheting, but one day I was home at my parents, cussing and cursing at the damned thing, and my mom took an interest. Oh yeah, she'd crocheted some when she was an adolescent. So I gave her the needle and the yarn and forgot all about it. Until I got these wristwarmers for my birthday. Pretty good for someone who hasn't crocheted in 40 years!
Now she's totally hooked on crocheting - and knitting, too. She's making socks and what not. Yay. More homemade goodness for me coming up!
