|Before I could start to teach anyone how to crochet I needed to teach myself.|
|I knew a few stitches but have never completed anything except a lap afghan |
that I made years ago for my grandmother.
|So I decided to buy the Peaches and Cream 100%|
cotton yarn at Walmart and make a dish cloth!!
|Well I loved doing this! They aren't perfect but it was so much fun!|
|I gave all of my children one for Christmas along with some other goodies.|
I have made several and gave close friends and family a dish cloth.
So far everyone loves them!
They are so much fun to make.
|So I decided it was time for a teachable moment with my Granddaughters!|
|Excuse the messiness but we were having fun and doing a little bit of everything!|
|These 2 Grands were determined and caught on pretty quick.|
|I taught them how to put it on the needle and then the chain stitch.|
|I love seeing their hands working.|
|I think that they loved learning!|
They told their Mom that they loved coming to Gran's house!
|I used this time to tell them stories that they loved hearing.|
I also taught "Sweet Teen" how to do a half double crochet.
She is going to practice at home.
|I share with them both how important it is to learn these things.|
I told them that if they don't learn then they can't teach their children
one day and it would be a lost art.
