Gosh, everyone, thank you so much for your kind comments. I'm glad no one minded me bragging a bit about my girl.
The fact that she can crochet is so good for her. I never realized, until I was a mom, the hard part about being the youngest. She often feels left behind because her big sister and brother can do so many more things than she can.
Well, now she has one thing that she can do that they can't and you can see how proud she is of it.
My Grandma used to re write the patterns for me in one color ink and the abbreviation next to it in a different color so I would get used to seeing it. Before long I could read patterns. Just some suggestions
Thanks for this suggestion! I don't mind reading the pattern to her, but eventually she should learn how to read it herself.
The second one has videos and the first has pictures with directions. (and the second one is the website of one of our very own craftster members.)
Please tell her she did fabulous! I'm so impressed!
Eliea-- thanks for the website recommendations! I'll definitely book mark those.
Your daughter did a great job, maybe now she can make her friends bday presents instead of buying, just think how proud she'll be to say "I made that."
Yesterday she took her penguin to school to show her crochet teacher. All of the kids were asking her to make one for them. I had to laugh-- I told her, "you're a true crafter when you get people begging you to make them one!!"
This penguin is very cute. Now he needs a friend of some kind!
She's started the next one already!
thanks again, everyone!! If it wasn't for Craftster, we would have never discovered amigurumi in the first the place.
Yay for Craftster!!
