There were only a few moms who did not quite get the hang of crocheting at our MOMS Night Out on Friday. And only one of those who I don't think will try again. Even the two moms who just came to hang out (and drink) crocheted at least a little.
One mom just kept trucking along with her chaining, and is coming back Monday for more. She said she had a lot of fun, and even dreamed about crocheting all that night. But she really has no interest in learning another "stitch", and decided chains make really good bookmarks! I even gave her a charm to put on the end of it. Apparently her 6 year old stole the first one, so she HAS to make another.
Another mom kept saying in a very calm voice, "I think I hate this," as she continued struggling through three rows of "double crochet". It didn't look much like any stitch I've ever done, but she stuck with it until she used up the ball of practice yarn. Then she was done, and headed home. I guess crocheting (or "Yarning" as 3-year-old G-man calls all the yarn arts) is not for everyone, but at least she tried.
