Along with a sewing basket covered in brightly colored fabric with peace signs, some yarn and crochet hooks, it made a perfect Christmas present.
Clare likes the book, she really does, but she isn't getting much time to read it because someone else has been using it…ahem! I have read quite a few different kids crochet books from the library, but this is my favorite one by far. The instructions are excellent and easy to follow. Since Christmas, I have mastered single crochet, increasing and decreasing. I have made a tool pouch for Clare's crochet goodies, a wavy headband for my six-year old daughter, and….ta-da! These fun beanies for the girls!

Dorothy's hat was made from a self-striping pink/brown yarn, Clare's from a thicker off-white yarn. Around their necks they are each wearing matching "scarves" that they made (long chain stitch ropes).
After a recent visit to Michael's, I am now stocked with enough bulky yarn to continue my crochet obsession. There is a sweater pattern in the book that is adorable!!
