Old Friends

May 17, 2011

My parents stayed with us last weekend while they attended a concert.  With them arrived a very old friend of mine.  Golli!

My amazing Nanna knitted Golli for my eldest brother when he was a baby, although a few years later he befriended me too.  Nanna was a prolific knitter and all her items came with so much love - Golli was no exception.  Complete with bow-tie, tails and little yellow shoes he is such a cutie.

Golli surely has seen a few generations now and although the top of his head is a bit worse for wear, the rest of him is still going strong.  

Now Golli and our little poppet seems to have become fast friends.  How sweet!

Long live old friends.

    Oh, how sweet! I had a Golli when I was growing up, that had been made for my dad. Unfortunately my dog chewed him all up when I was a teenager and my mum threw him out! I still get sad thinking about that - I wish I had Golli to pass on to my kids, especially as my husband has saved a bunch of his soft toys from childhood and passed them on. Your wee one is adorable! Magnificent hair!
