Something I've been meaning to post about for a while is the tattoo I got recently.. I got my grandma's name, also my middle name - Margaret - under my right armpit. She's taught me how to knit so I got it where I hold one of my knitting needles when I knit. As knitting becomes more and more of a focus for me it feels very fitting.

I got it in her handwriting, taken from this sample I found in a book she owned when growing up titled Riders of the Sea by Anne Hepple!

After a few minor alterations this is what I came up with!

My friend Sarah came along and also got a great tattoo.. It's an illustration based on the floral patterns adorning a collection of hankies her nan gave her before she passed away. Super cute!
