Since being officially off from work for the summer, I have been quite busy fulfilling obligations and such. My hope is that if I do those things the first week off from work, then the rest of the summer the pace will ease off a bit. We'll see. So anyways, today I spent a good portion of the day working with a girl on crocheting. She knew the chain and sc stitches, but I wanted to help her fine-tune those stitches so that they would be made correctly, I wanted to show her how to count the stitches, and read a very simple pattern. Too much?
We were off to a grande start until Sponge Bob interferred and then iCarly....You get the picture. I will say, although she didn't finish her piece today as I had hoped, the piece is well made. I checked behind her after each row of 15 stitches and took out any places that were wrong. She sighed and "aw, maned" but she was still proud to show her mom what she had done when her mom came to pick her up.
Her mom said that her sister read patterns and would be able to help her finish it, then she would call me so I can see the finished product or at least the crocheted part. The girl may come over again so we can stitch it up and sew on the button. She's making a little change purse.
Now since I'll be putting my computer in the hands of a technician come tomorrow morning, I better tell you now about this very cool giveway my friend CT is having. If you want the chance to have an amazing freebie, you better get on to her blog and check it out. I would tell you what she's giving away, but I don't want to spoil the fun!
p.s. And yes, I have started a new crochet project. Notice how I didn't tell you what it was. :-)
