Show & Tell {Kennady's New Skill}

Hopefully I can get my Show & Tell up and linked to our hostess, CanadaGirl, before I need to head off for the day's activities.  I will be back (if all goes well) to read other entries this evening.  So this week I am featuring my daughter, Kennady.

A couple of weeks ago, while my parents and aunts were here visiting, my mom and my aunt decided to teach Kennady how to crochet.  Kennady had been wanting to learn how to knit for awhile, and I thought her hands weren't big enough to handle that, but she might be able to crochet.  Unfortunately, my crochet skills are rudimentary to say the least, so I hadn't even tried to teach her.  Turns out that Kennady will probably be teaching ME, because she caught on really quickly!


When she first learned to chain, she made long ropes of single crochets, walking around the house crocheting!  After just a day or two, she moved on to double crochet and then completed her first project, a hotpad - and although I neglected to take a picture of it, I have been using it proudly!  We have all been impressed that Kennady learned so quickly, and that she has so much patience and perseverance in keeping at it.  And doesn't get frustrated when it doesn't go exactly right!  Way to go, Kennady!!!



I had one more picture to post, but it is not working and I am out of time, so I will edit and add it later!  LOL


For more Show & Tell fun, visit Mary at "Raising 4 Godly Men"

Kym, this is soooooooo neat !! You must be sooooo proud. I have a little note for your dd. ((HUGS))

Kennady ,

you go girl ! You look like you are doing GREAT ! You won't regret learning how to make wonderful things with your hands. Probably you can learn how to knit when you are 7 or 8. I can't remember how old you are but I am sure you are there. I suggest to use knitting needles that are connected by the plastic cord. the needles are not as big and are nice to handle. I sure wished you lived closer . I could have showed you how to knit. but I do have a neat online site to learn how to knit videos.

Blessings and ((HUGS))

In Him<><

That is just fabulous!

She hardly looks big enough to be doing that, but then I don't know much about little girls yet.

I'm glad she has found a hobby/skill that she so obviously enjoys and has a knack for, too.

I'm sure you are very proud of her.

Way to go Kennady! That you have learned to crochet so quickly is awesome! Keep making those projects. : )

Wonderful to get her started on such a great hobby now - my daughter also likes to make the single chain 'ropes'. I know we'll have to move onto more advanced techniques to complete a project - but, just like you, I am a knitter not a crochet-er. Ah well, learning together is fun, too.

Keep it up, Kennady!
