the littlest critic… October 6, 2010

Filed under: Baby,Crochet — Katherine @ 8:58 pm


Time seems to be moving at a really rather alarming rate. One day your baby is 5 granny squares long, and almost before you have time to blink, she’s stretching to a whole 9 grannies. Yowsers.

And yes, I’m measuring my child’s height in units of crochet. That’s a bit sad, isn’t it. I’m ok with it.

Even so, my baby girl is still only 3 months old. So imagine my surprise when I look up one day to find her inspecting my handiwork.



I may have to wait a while before I can get her feedback on it.

  1. I like how you can measure her in granny squares! She is just so cute, looks like she approves of the craftswomanship by the look on her face. πŸ˜€

    I SO love this post, and those pictures. Your adorable daughter is starting to figure out (in her estimation) that Mom can do anything! See? Look at these fabulous circles! I think I’ll nom on them for a minute…

    Sharing in your joy πŸ™‚ My 6 y.o. daughter just last night finally “clicked” with how to make a crochet chain, and has not wanted to stop. She was upset that she had to go to school today, when she would rather stay home and crochet. I said, “Now you understand my pain.” πŸ™‚
