I wondered if any of you ladies might like this poem that I wrote to include with a zippered sweater I made for one of my grandsons?

Since Nana can't be with you
Each time you're feeling bad
When you feel sad or poorly
Or when you just feel mad

She thought she'd send a cuddle
Made out of knitting wool
So you could climb inside
And give the zip a pull

With every stitch she thought of you
And said a special prayer
So every time you wore this hug
You'd know her love was there

So next time you're down in the dumps
Put on your special sweater
With Nana's love wrapped round you
You'll soon be feeling better!

(My DIL says he wore this until it was a rag and then still kept it hung on his bedpost to put on every time he was upset!)

Lovely words.
Maybe they should be written down and attached to every sweater we make.

My grandson gets upset, so when I make his jacket next I will put this poem in for him so he can always think of me being there for him. Thanks a million for this beautiful poem.

The tears are still flowing down my cheeks. May I use your poem in my step-grands Christmas gifts?

Lovely poem... when I quilted for my GK I'd always tell them they were sewn with love, andif they had a bad day to wrap up in the quilt and grandma's love would surround them... not an eloquent poem....but they do remember it!
