Give A Kid The Gift Of Crochet!
Crochet for Kids - A Gift Of Your Time That Gives Forever!
There are so many wonderful things about learning to crochet as a kid! I did, and I grew to enjoy it as my No. 1 pastime. It gave me a lifetime love of yarn and thread work.
I learned to crochet a little bit from three different ladies in my life at age 11 -Mrs. Pearl, my Gramma neighbor, who spent so much wonderful time with me; my Gramma Ethel, who put such beautiful edgings on pillowcases; and my mom Izzy, who made the most beautiful doilies along with lots of other thread work. All three of them contributed a little something along the way. My mom laid down the cash though and bought my first yarn, hook and pattern (there were no "kits" back then!) It was bright purple yarn and I still have a bit of it stashed somewhere.
Here's my daughter trying one of my scarves on her beloved Pookie dog. Can you imagine the fun your kid would have crocheting things for the animals and people in their life?
Give your kid the gift of giving -that's what crocheting (or knitting or any needle art) does. It gives you a way to give gifts you made to others. It's a good thing.
