I love having a small project to work on while I am working on a large project. I also like to make useful items if possible.
Sue DeLage says
Love all of these, it is great to have something small, so when I show A younger person how to knit or crochet they have a finished product in a short time and they are excited that they have completed their project and can start another
That’s a great idea. I learned to do Tunisian crochet by making coasters. Everyone I knew got coasters one year for Christmas. Starting small gives the person a sense of accomplishment. By the way, I was in my 60’s when I started. We’re all young at heart.
