from my Grandma Dykstra (and I think from my Great-Grandma Meerdink)
It was my Grandma Dykstra's and from what I remember, she said it was her mother's.
It has a tag on it with my grandma's name on it in my handwriting--I remember putting that on and taking it to the nursing home so she would have something from her work at home close by. That was 30 years ago.
Mom also gave me a darning egg that is similar to one I already have. It is not the one we grew up with so I asked her to please keep a look out for that one for me.
I keep a pair of knee highs from my high school years in my sock drawer because they were darned by my grandma.
