2nd week of Crochet Camp

15 Jul

This is the second week of Crochet Camp for Let’s Go Crafting and we have a whole new group of enthusiastic new crocheters.  All but one were brand new to crocheting this morning.  But by the end of our three hours they were doing great!

This camper already knew how to crochet, but she learned a better way to hold her yarn and hook so that her next projects will be easier to complete.

This is such a great time for the campers!  They make new friendships and bond together.

We dyed yarn again this week because the campers really love this activity.  We soak the yarn first because the wet yarn takes up the dye better.

Dyeing yarn - it never gets old.
