Since I am finding it harder and harder to post weekly with all the activities of the Advent season, and getting ready for Christmas. I have put as much into this post as possible. So enjoy!
First I will start with my crafting information.
Rosario from the Caron web site. I used over 2.5 pounds of yarn for this. Needless to say this is a VERY heavy vest. She will be plenty warm in it too.
I picked up the afghan again yesterday and am trying to get that finished so I can get it wrapped and ready to give away this Christmas. That is what I am working on 99% of the time when I don't have certain people over to the house that I don't want to see it.
My grand daughter had a sleep over with us on Friday night. Saturday morning she decided she wanted to learn how to crochet. I tried, I really did. But I am left handed and she is most definitely not. I know I learned sitting in front of a righty but since she has not clue as to even how to hold a hook or yarn it just was not working out. So........ I pulled out a size 10 circular needle along with some nice acrylic yarn and informed her she was going to learn how to knit. I do knit right handed so there was no problem there. So how did she do?
I would say from the look of pride that she did quite well. She managed to do 6 rows with a bit of help and was so excited when I told her to go ahead and take it home with her to practice. I just might have another crafting partner very soon.
Now onto more photos of the interior of our home decorated for Christmas. I don't know if you knew it or not, but my husband collects Nativity Sets. So the following is all the Nativities set up in our family room.
Thank you for stopping by!
Congratulations - independent reader and student of the month! And then to learn to knit as well! My sister is left-handed and I could never teach her to knit or crochet. She found it very frustrating!ReplyDelete
Absolutely adore those lip-balm covers! Wish I'd thought of it sooner for stocking stuffers!
Its so hard on the run up to Christmas to find time for everything. I love the vest for your daughter, really pretty colours. Super well done to your granddaughter on her knitting, nothing as special as getting little ones crafting. I love your Nativity sets, I love having them all round the house too although I don't have quite as many as your hubbie lol. I do enjoy reading all the blogs even when they are not so craft based.ReplyDelete
