>Another one

>My oldest daughter decided she wanted to make the yoyo afghan, too, but she wanted to make it in acrylic because I have a ton of it I never use any more. Since it will be a child’s blanket, acrylic is probably best as well because it will get a lot of use and need to be washed often. I didn’t show her the tutorial; I just explained the stitch count and she watched me when I was making some and snuk off on her own to figure it out. When she came back with one round completed, I handed her another ball and said, “Can you figure out the second round on your own?” and she did, So then I let her get yarn out of the stash; too bad the stash was already boxed and taped closed so I had to go and find it.

    >Oh, that is neat. I was just talking today to someone on the phone and they mentioned how so very few young gals do needlework today. I think it would please her to see this blog post. 🙂

    >I only have sons but already have them helping me with some needlecraft. It is a wonderful gift to give your children – the ability to make something with your own hands……
