Long summer afternoons are not spent in vain. I've been crocheting flowers and scarves and cuffs. Cuffs are one of favourite accessories. They add a bit of drama to clothes, and make the appearance highly feminine and elegant. Especially with a lace pattern like this.These are lovely Cinderella cuffs.
I have also been teaching my daughter to crochet. She tried to crochet a simple flower but got bored and frustrated because the hook went the opposite direction of what her brain was dictating and soon gave up. Our lessons always end up like this, but I know that deep in her heart she wants to learn. So we'll keep trying.
