her love for crochet

November 22, 2017

I love to crochet and it’s fun to see one of my girls pick it up. The girls learned from their Grandmama; she taught them while they were in Texas over the summer. True loves to crochet too, but Brave is the one often with a hook and yarn in hand (True is more a sewer). Currently, she’s working on making herself a striped bag. It’s fun to see their personalities come out more in the hobbies they choose to pursue.

Maybe one day one of the girls will pick up knitting and teach me! That’s one skill I don’t quite understand.

  • I tried to teach myself to crochet when I was 8 and had no way of really knowing what to do. My grandmother crocheted nonstop when I was a kid, but we were never close. When I asked her to show me how to do it once, she just said, “I don’t know, I just count and loop.” Then she shooed me away. I since have tried to do more, but my edges were always wonky and never even.

    I am so glad that your girls have a grandmother who actually takes the time to teach a skill like crocheting to her grand daughters!!

      They have a very patient grandmother who loves to pass on the skills she knows! It’s a blessing for sure.

    That is so sweet she loves to crochet! I love knitting and have knitted for over 10 years now. It is such a wonderful skill to be able to make with yarn and so therapeutic. It is so nice that your girls are learning how to crochet and sew early.

    I had to laugh when I read this. My mom tried teaching me to crochet twice when I was a kid, and I got bored and didn’t like it. I learned to knit for a kid’s church activity and really liked it. I didn’t really do it after that though. Now that I’m an adult, I picked up knitting again when people at work would do it on their lunch breaks. I bought a book (Not Your Mama’s Knitting) and it refreshed my memory. That was a few years ago, and I’ll occasionally pick up my knitting again, but I still haven’t tried crocheting again. Maybe I should while my mom can still teach me.
