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.

      I learned to crochet from my nan when I was about 8 (knitting took a whole lot longer) and I've been doing it ever since; I've tried to teach my daughter but she is still at the age where she is easily discouraged and also has trouble with hobbies that require no electricity. But one day, one day, I know it will click for her.

      I was in my 30's before I learned to crochet -- as I'm left-handed, no one knew how to teach me. :) But I was determined and tried & tried until I figured it out. Having a grandma or mom or good friend teach you as a child would be great. I once gave a lesson to my 11 year old grandson who expressed an interest. He only made one item - a red crocheted coaster for his dad's coffee, and it was a bit lopsided, but he persevered until he was done and was proud of his accomplishment. Kit's for kids today makes it easier.
