A new fiber artist is born...

I had so much fun on Sunday afternoon. While the wind howled and a snow squall blew through our town, my 5 yo dd curled up on the couch with me in front of a roaring fire and asked me to teach her to crochet. We started with finger crochet, and progressed to a large hook. She decided that using that hook was hard but finger crocheting was fun! So we stuck with finger crocheting for now. Many chained belts, headbands and necklaces were made that afternoon.

What a sweet daughter you have. My Mom taught me at the age of 3 1/2, just because she needed me to just sit and concentrate on something instead of bouncing off the walls. I'm now 68 and still going.

That's awesome! My ten year old daugher wants to learn how to crochet, but we can't even get through chains. Maybe I should try the finger crocheting with her.

Your pretty girl is so sweet and so lucky to be learning to crochet.
I can't wait until my 7 month old granddaughter is old enough!!!
