Tips for Teaching Children to Crochet


If you think back to when you first started learning a new skill, you might be just a little hesitant to want to teach your kids to crochet. It can be really frustrating to learn something new! But it’s so worth the effort. Children can really benefit from learning a hands-on skill like knitting, crochet or woodworking.

A much better way to combine 2 yarn colors. No tangles this way. No verbal instructions just music, so mute if you like. #fiberarts #handspun #spinningyarn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eb4mJcPsuiY

This week is Zero Waste Week and the theme is #reuse   I'm starting baby steps to become zero waste and yarn and all things fiber is definitely included. Do you reuse yarn scraps, make t-shirt yarn or plarn? Any suggestions to green up your craft? #zerowasteweek   #zerowaste   #fiberarts   #crochet   #knitting

Got 5 minutes? This is amazing. Sarah Corrigan of the Roots School gathers, processes and spins dogbane fiber into cordage. She uses a horn comb for refining the material and spins it with a Turkish style drop spindle. The single ply cordage is then double plied into two ply, or woven into the twined fiber basket or made into natural fiber bow strings and snare lines. #handspun  #spinningyarn #fiber

This is amazing! Never underestimate the value of just doing something for fun. You never know where it will lead. "Traditional craft skills are helping to save the lives of children born with heart defects in Bolivia." http://www.bbc.com/news/health-32076070

http://sakeenah.com/weekly-pattern-roundup-fiber-arts-4/ Is it spring yet? I’ve been looking forward to it being chilly enough to wrap up in something, but nice enough to take a walk and look for flowers. This week's pattern roundup is looking forward to spring breezes. #sewing #crochet #knit #patternroundup
