8yr old fingers

During the past school term Kimberley has come to me a number of times with a crochet hook and a ball of wool, hoping I could spend some time with her and teach her how to crochet. As the school days are rather busy, with spelling lists and homereaders, I promised I would teach her in the holidays. Well, last night we sat down together and I showed her maybe twice how to hold her needle and how the wool goes inbetween and around fingers, and it wasn't another two times to show her how to make a chain, and she was away. As I type, I think we have about 3m of chain in blue wool in the lounge!

And seeing she practised her chain so much today, I had to sit and show her the next thing. The treble. And sure enough, she is sitting next to me busy making a 'granny square'.  So with 4 hours of sitting in a car coming up, I am sure I know what she will be doing, and I guess there will eventually be a post with her creation!

Till next time.
