When I was a kid, we had knitting, crochet, embroidery,… lessons at school. Now that’s all gone to make place for computer and that sort of stuff. Ok, I know times have changed and they gonna need the computer more than a crochethook, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. I think kids should learn to knit and crochet and… So, 2 schoolyears ago, I went to the principals office and we had a nice chat about it. She loves knitting, so she completely understood and agreed with what I had to say. We came up with the idea of a crochetclass. I worked out some easy patterns over the summerholiday and last schoolyear I had my own crochetclass, one day a week during lunchbreak and kids could volunteer to come. I expected/hoped maybe 5 – 10 kids would come, but to my surprise it was near 20 girls and boys! Not everyone stayed, they found it wasn’t they’re cup of tea and quitted, others came to have a look and then joined. It wasn’t easy, but lots of fun and by the end of the year they knew the basics.
Unfortunatly, this year, due to my work, I wasn’t able to do the class. I missed it and so did the kids, so I decided to do a workshop at home for them. This is the result.
I’m so proud off them!
They all asked if I could do this again, so it’s to be continued…
