Nonni's Crochet Throw Shorts (M/L)

Nonni's Crochet Throw Shorts (M/L)


These shorts are made from a hand-crocheted throw blanket, made by my maternal Italian great grandmother, Camilla "Nonni" Baratta. My mother, Michele Baratta-Detwiler, said that she remembers her Nonni keeping a crocheting needle in every room of the house, to always have different projects to be working on. Meanwhile, she would be rolling pasta in the kitchen. My mom said she would go in there to try to sneak some pasta before dinner, and Nonni would slap her because it wasn't dinner yet. Or if she had a broom stick, she'd whack her with that and say no!
