The way he held the yarn and needles, so naturally, really surprised me.
He really didn't struggle and his scarf grew very quickly.
My daughter loves to make jewelry. She hurries in the morning to get ready for school so she can sneak off to her room and make a necklace and earrings to match her outfit. She has made sets and given them to friends, teachers, aunts, grandma, and cousins. Did you notice there is no mom on that list. I teased her one day asking if she was ever going to make a set for me. She looked at me surprised and said that the ones she makes and keeps are for us to share. I guess she thought I already knew that.
It dawned on me one day as I was surfing Etsy and dreaming about pretty stitch markers that I had my own little jeweler right here in my house. I showed her what stitch markers looked like and asked if she thought she could make them. "No problem", she said. So we went shopping for a few essentials and in no time she made me these...
Aren't they so pretty?
I went back to the store yesterday and bought smaller jump rings and asked her to make some stitch markers for my sock knitting. I can't wait!
I am really looking forward to this weekend. My sweatheart and the kids have been having lots of "meetings" without me. I think it is going to be a good Mother's Day weekend for me! I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend, too!
