We switched gears with our handwork from knitting to crocheting in the last month or so. Knitting was getting to be a chore for Alex, and it was definitely time for something new. We did a wee bit of leather work with our final Native American block (by getting leather kits at Hobby Lobby.) And then we took to learning crocheting. I’m a newbie to the art of crocheting as well, so it’s something that we learned together. I did it my way by watching YouTube videos, and tried to teach Alex the skills as I mastered them. We were doing okay, but I needed some ideas for simple projects and went to the library. Alex found Kids Learn to Crochet, he taught himself the remainder of the skills and is already on his third project! He’s really enjoying crocheting!
