So when I was making my Christmas gifts this past winter, I could not think of a darn thing to give my grandpa. What do you give a little old man who has everything? My mom suggested I crochet him a placemat for the centre of his kitchen table and I agreed it was a great idea. I chose the colours because yellow is his favourite colour and the dark green edge would be easy to see against the light colour of his table, you know, so he wouldn't put something half down on it and it spill or something.
