Emine’s Knitted Socks Have a Story To Tell

Shared by KnittyTurks who shares this great story, “These socks were knit by my husband’s grandmother about 35 years ago. They have the name Emine knit over the foot, but it is spelled wrong and sometimes the letters are backwards. I adore them and even on the coldest days they keep me warm. Emine would have been my sister-in-law, but she died before the age of two. I think it’s sweet that grandma knit adult sized socks for a baby hardly able to walk yet.”
