The kids love learning to knit and crochet. I really enjoy teaching them and helping them along. The problem is that these kind of projects take a long time and in today's world of instant gratification, knitting and crocheting are antiquated simply because they are slow.
But the girls have perservered. Often shortening projects so they will be over faster, but they continually come back to them.
Here is Madelyn's little "lovey" blankie she (finally) finished.
Here is Catherine's scarf that may never end!
And the closet full of projects in various states of completion.
