An interesting bit of information about you: My two grandmas were dear friends, and taught me to crochet. My dad's mom taught me the basics, and we progressed from there. My mom's mom taught me how to make the toppers for the kitchen towels. We spent all afternoon together and it's one of my favorite memories. I use my grandma's old yarn bag and her old hooks when making items, so each creation is extra special to me.

Be sure to check out all of the lovely Homefront Team shops by searching "homefrontteam" on Etsy.

Nice to meet you! Thanks for sharing. I remember my mother and grandmother crocheting towel toppers. I still use them today . . . never misplace my towel!
