Girls with skills

"You should learn to crochet or knit so you can make us cool scarves and hats."  That's what my husband said to me this week.  And I could actually respond, "I know how to crochet."  I grew up crocheting.  It's one of the skills my mother taught me.  What else is there to do during a long, cold Alaskan winter?  Alaska girls got skills!  Now-a-days not many girls learn to sew or knit or do all those "domestic" things.  Women want to be "empowered".  Not curtail to our grandmother's generation.  But I have to say, those skills come in very handy!  So today I'm thankful for the domestic skills my mama taught me.  When all the other girls have to take their trousers to a seamstress to be hemmed, I feel very empowered!

  1. Haha! You go girl! High school home-ec and sewing classes come in handy every now and then, huh? :)

  2. Honey, I don't know what's going on over there in Europe, but don't you know over here knitting is the trendy thing to do these days! It's very hipster. My 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders sure are loving it! :)

    1. Krissi, I tried knitting once. It was not my strength. I'll stick with crocheting. It's easier, I already know how to do it and it makes the same stuff. I live in Europe - I can't do much more trendy. :)
