Jacob told me he wanted me to teach him to crochet so he could make his teacher's scarf. That was a great idea. However, the yarn he chose was wavy and not very conducive to learning with. So, I told him I would make this one, with the yarn he chose and teach him with some yarn I had around the house.
Then, I was at browsing yarn another day (really I have way too much yarn already, but again I digress). I saw a knitting loom and thought, that would be much easier to teach than crochet for a first timer, who is 8.
He took right to it.
I think he is proud of his work.
He is so diligent.
Santa will be hard pressed to pick a better Christmas gift for me this year. Isn't this the most beautiful scarf you have ever seen?
This is his next project. We chose some straight yarn for his teacher's scarf and he's making it himself. I think he's proud!
Now, I need a home for this "wavy" purple scarf, that I made.
