Latch Hook'n Kiddo

Latch Hook'n Kiddo

So, I guess I am raising a crafty kid. First finger knitting, next was making a chain (aka: Necklace, bracelet, anklet) using a crochet hook and now making a rug with Latch Hook.


About a week ago we were watching Uncommon Threads (DIY Network - http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/shows_duct/) and they had the "hookers" on to show Latch Hook rug making. Nicole was so excited and wanted to try "hook'n". Just so happens that Mom did latch hook for years - last year Mom bought a kit to make a pillow/little rug for Nicole but never started it. During the move I found the kit and tucked it away with my sewing/craft supplies.

On a sleepy Sunday afternoon recently, I pulled out the kit and gave it to her. Nicole thought I was a hero!! Like magic! The trouble started when I realized, I don't know how to latch hook and Granny was sleeping. I tried to read the directions but they didn't make sense to me.

Nicole was impatient and didn't want to wait for Granny to wake up and realized that I didn't know what I was doing, so she took matters in her own hands. She grabbed the instructions away from me, looked at the pictures and figured it out by herself! As you can see, she is moving along on her new project! And you will also notice, she is still wearing her handcuffs! ;-) Liz

This is a great idea! I have a six-year old and this would be right up her alley. By the way, I found your blog, because I am right next to you guys on the Bay Area Knitters Ring.
