What I'm Working on Wednesday

Hello and Happy Wednesday!!

I am having a great week and am planning on working up some swatches today. Next on my list is my very own Goddess Tunic and probably a custom order for some new Snuggle Cocoons.

Now, remember that big box of yarn I showed you yesterday...well, I do have some big plans for it! This summer I have chosen 5 local girls (including my little Heather and our neighbor Kathryn) and will teach them to crochet granny squares. Then we will sew them together to make blankets, scarves, or whatever we decide to make. Then together, we will all decide on a local charity to donate the finished items to. The girls are really excited about this project and so am I!! In return for me teaching them to crochet, they will promise to meet with me 2 hours a week during the summer to make their squares. I have a total of 5 girls, but would love to have more. But right now I think 5 is all I can handle, LOL! I may be able to invite more towards the end of summer once they get better at crocheting. Or if I can find another adult to help me that knows how to crochet. But I'll keep you all informed of our progress. And BTW, I'm hoping to make this a yearly Summer project...and I'm calling it The Granny Square Project - 2011!

What a great project idea! I actually just wrote a guest post (not yet published) on why crochet makes a great all ages summer project. :)

What a great idea! I look forward to the day when my girls have the patience to learn to crochet. They are 6, 4 and 3, so soon, but not yet. I plan on being the Girl Scout Crochet Mom.
