Although their work usually takes the form of knitted fabric, sometimes even made with electronic knitting machines, the duo put their needles aside in favor of some new crochet hooks and set to work creating these painstakingly detailed pieces of filet crochet, which clearly illustrate a glowing affection for their grandparents.
