It was brought to my attention this week that in some schools knitting and crocheting is being taught! These skills are being “woven” (I am so punny) throughout the curriculum! I love this idea and am super jealous of these stellar kids, who are going to grow into people who make the best homemade gifts. Here is one article of many that I have found!
Specifically Waldorf schools seem to encourage crocheting, which is the focus of the above article. I find this sentence insightful.
You can see that they are quite well vested in creating coozies, hats, and squares. So far my skills have allowed me to make squares. I absolutely will take lessons from these students. Throughout the article it is evident that the students love their crocheting and knitting time!
Growing up in a small town school, I did not have the luxury of a home economics class. I feel as though I missed out on a few home skills, that I would appreciate being able to do now. Just look at these kids crocheting like little pros!
These kids are putting me to shame and I am a bit jealous! I better get back to work AKA struggling!!
