Somehow I decided to see about volunteering at the intermediate school that our kids go to, teaching crochet with the after-school program. It was a crazy whim, and I haven't been able to do a lot for the school in recent years. They said yes.
I started on Monday, and did 3 days in a row. It was hard to keep their attention, sometimes, but there are kids in each group that really picked it up with very little guidance. It was rewarding to hear each day that the kids were asking if they would be knitting or crocheting today (I haven't bothered to correct them very often) throughout their days of school.
I love that there is a group of middle-schoolers that are so interested in the craft I know and love. And I'm honored to be able to participate in their lives.
