I am so proud of my youngest class member so far, Emelie 8 years old. At this week's Crochet Workshop she came with her mother to improve her crochet skills. We decided to go for the granny square as both mother and daughter already had done some basic stitch practising. It started off a bit rough, the first row in a granny square is always a bit hard but look... She did it! And she even changed color for her 4th row. Well done Emelie!
I have to say, teaching kids how to crochet brings out the most patient and best tutor in me. You kind of let your guard down and just go very slow and hands on with your guiding and this helps not only children but everyone in the class. We had a lovely time and time went by way to quickly. Homework for next weeks class is to make more granny squares. I can't wait to see what they will look like. Teaching crochet is so much fun and so so so rewarding. I am enjoying myself as much as my students are. It couldn't be better. :D
