I taught my mom how to crochet today. She knows how to chain and single crochet now! I'm so proud. Grin

She's not a member here.

She's going to be making a scarf. She's been practicing in front of the TV every night now.

aw that's great! i just taught two friends how to crochet a week or so ago and they loved it! they caught on really quick, too.

and the success of that has caused me to start teaching regular craft "classes" to my friends! i'm so excited, i'll be doing it in the new year and it's gotten a lot of response so far. Cheesy

oh and because of the extra yarn left from making slippers for my mom and sister, i'm also giving them some hooks and a little instruction cd on how to crochet! i hope they can learn it on their own...

but ya! congrats on teaching your mom! i love the joy i felt when i saw the girls' first chain, and then first row, and now first scarves! it's fantastic to teach!

Oh, I've never taught anyone to crochet, yet.  That must be exciting to pass that along.  What did you guys find was the most challenging part of the process for your mom and friends to pick up?

I remember the hardest part for me to learn was how to wrap the yarn around my left hand to hold the tension right.

That was exactly her problem! And I didn't know how to help her either.

Thanks!

Have you tried nexstitch.com?
Yes, I just went there tonight. It's a nice site-the videos are quite helpful. I know I have a crochet hook around here somewhere, so I might just try out some chains for now. I want to be able to make those amigurumis (I hope thats what they are) someday. I usually do better with someone right near me, so they can see what I'm doing and tell me when I mess up, but I guess I won't know if I need help if I don't try!
