Learning something new.

Two days ago my teenage daughter asked me if I could teach her to crochet. This was at 5.30 pm and she knew I was going out in an hour. I didn't want to discourage her as she can give up on an idea easily ( and would probably never speak to me again if she knew I had written that). So I took the time to show her how to do a chain and double and treble stitches. Then I had to go...... But I left her with a wonderful tutorial from here.

By the time I got home she had created the little granny square and since then she has gone on to make the larger square. The reason she has stopped - well she has run out of wool. And of course we only had one ball. But never fear we will get some more.

I think she is on to something and it makes me happy seeing her doing something crafty.

As for me, well, there seems to have been nothing crafty going on at all, maybe next week when the kids go back to school.

Thank you to Shelley at Spincushions for the wonderful tutorial. It certainly helped one teenager to learn to crochet.

I love to read that younger people want to learn the art of needlework...all kinds. Good for her, and you for taking the extra minute to help her.
