A crochet soccer ball for Lois

My grandmother, Nora Buchta, was born and raised in and around Edwardsville, in Madison County, Illinois.

As an adult, it is a place I go back to whenever the opportunity presents itself. This documents a crochet soccer ball I made for my Cousin Lois in a dozen or more of her favorite colors, to give as a thank you gift on one of my stays.
