  1. The Mario quilt is a chilling reminder that some people who are currently grandmothers may have played NES in the prime of their lives.

    1. Or if they’re like my grandma, played NES in her mid fifties and early sixties because two of her grandkids got her into it. She stopped playing vidya games with the grandkids around the PS1 era.


  2. The thing with marijuana and bjs is that grandmothers were once young people, too.

    I love the crochet shark, tire cover, and super Mario blanket.

    1. Well I asked my mum to pick up a lighter in the corner shop and she got one covered in marijuana leaves in the colours of the Jamaican flag and it was definitely unintentional. I was 14.

      Please go away. You post the same shit over and over. It’s really boring. Please find some other way to spend your time.

  3. Doing the quick and dirty math…I see $80 per page of that photo album. Assuming that each page is the same, and I can count 35 pages…that equals $2,800. Anyone else’s grandma ever just give them damned near $3,000?

  4. I hate to break it to you, but many of these were not made by grandmas, and some were made by men. The Super Mario blanket photo was first posted on Ravelry.com around 8 years ago — and if memory serves, the blanket was made by a dad, for his kids. The blanket in the photo was the original, which has since been made by other people. There is even an Instructable pattern now.

    Not all crochet or knitting is the work of “grandmas” by some sort of default. Believe it or not, it is still called a ‘granny square’ even if the person making it isn’t a granny. The more you know….
