It only took me 24 years to learn to crochet!
Created By: D Dawn

My mom is an avid crocheter. She has been all of her life. And when I hit the ripe age of 8, she decided it was time for me to learn. So she tried to teach me. And spent the next 24 years trying to teach me. For some reason, it just wasn't clicking. Recently she made scarves for my two oldest sons. I mentioned that my husband had seen the scarves and wanted one, too. She promptly got up, dropped a skein of yarn and a hook in my lap and said, "Well, make him one." Now, I'm not sure why she decided again to teach me, but she was so matter of fact about it. And I did. I picked up the yarn and made my husband a scarf. I made my youngest son a scarf. I made my youngest son's teacher a pair of booties for the baby that she is expecting. I'm working on a sweater for my daughter and a pair of slippers for my husband's birthday. I was surprised by how easy it is! There is a certain satisfaction in making something for someone that I care about. I knoe that my mom likely doesn't have many years of creating the beautiful things that she has gifted me and my children with over the years. She has RA and her fingers are starting to become damaged from that disease. I like knowing that she has a certain peace about the projects that are dear to her heart. She knows that I can finish them for her when her fingers are no longer able. And I'm excited that this is opening a whole world of opportunity for me. Mom and I are going to start crocheting booties for preemies and donating them to local hospitals. I'm going to teach my children to make the chains that go around the top. Hopefully it won't take me 24 years to teach them!
