Hannah has shown an interest in learning to braid and so I repurposed some yarn scraps and made a tri-color door hanger. She proved an apt pupil and acquired the skill after one brief lesson.
Not to be outdone by his little sister, Jared asked if he too could learn to braid... for survival skills (of course).... in case he needed to braid rope (uh-huh).... in an emergency situation.... or something. Who can argue with reasoning like that?
Since I don't want Jared to die in the wilderness, I'm glad that my yarn door hanger braiding teacher thing-a-ma-jigger works for me.
