A Future Crochet Gal?

Every picture tells a story.
This sweet little blue-eyed blonde was able to spend the night at her grandma's house this weekend. Sunday morning was a tad boring for her since her grandparents have stored or gotten rid of so many pieces of junk, er a-hem, toys. So they all sat down to watch one of the Raiders of the Lost Ark movies and grandma picked up her crochet hook and started to work on a scarf. One should really think about what they're doing when a 'pushing 6 years old' girl is around and quite curious. "Grandma, I wanna do that, too!" Oh, boy. LOL So together they found a little bit of leftover yarn that was to her liking, and a big fat hook. Together, her and her granny made a very long chain. They measured her head, then did a little more of the chain, and measured some more. Finally it was the right length to fit around her head. So she got mommy involved, who hates needlework of any kind, and had her cut the bright pink yarn. After the knot was tied she put it on for modeling. It fit perfectly. And OH was she PROUD!
Fwamma (Dylan's pronunciation) was also proud and asked to take a picture of the little girl and her very first project. So young miss blue-eyes picked the spot for the picture to be taken, got Tyger to hold because she loves his blue eyes (along with asking four gazillion questions about why she had blue eyes) and hence the photo of a jammie clad happy camper, or should we say CROCHETER!
The End.....

YAY!!! That is how it starts. And she'll probably remember that experience for the rest of her life. =) You're a great grandma!
