What the Girl Has Been Up To

Ever since we got back from Alabama, the girl has been crocheting. She witnessed a couple of people crocheting and became interested in learning herself.

She bought herself a crochet hook, found an article in one of her kids' magazines on basic crochet and went to work with some previously purchased yarn (from other craft projects she's worked on).

She struggled with learning from just a couple of pictures along with written directions. Mom tried helping her but all mom could do was a single strand - which is totally useless unless you are planning on making a scarf for an earthworm. I'm glad children are not limited by their parents' knowledge...(or lack thereof).

But she didn't give up (she's definitely more like her dad). She kept at it until pretty soon she was making squares.

And then she made this.

She said it's not quite finished b/c she wants to add a face to it - but she still granted permission for me to post a picture.

I wish she lived closer to her maternal grandma or one of her aunts so they could help her with her crocheting...

Learning to crochet on one's own is a difficult thing to achieve!

Wow! I need to learn to crochet, but I want to find someone to teach me. I tried learning from a book and wasn't happy with the results. :-)

Thanks for stopping by and entering my giveaway. :-)
