This yarn lover is in love with the story about a Wisconsin school bus driver who crochets stuffed dolls for her students. Let me clarify, every student on her bus gets a personalized, handmade toy courtesy of their bus driver, Ms. Trudy Serres.
As someone who crochets and knits (not well, but my heart is in the right place), I can appreciate the time and dedication Ms. Serres commits to each project, interlacing love throughout each stitch – hundreds of stitches for each toy. Oh yeah, let’s not forget, yarn is not free!
The greatest story within the story is Ms. Serres’ commitment to her role in the lives of children. Understanding that the school day starts when students step onto her bus and that she is as integral to students’ education as anyone in the school building.
“My elementary students see me crochet and they thought they could challenge me,” she wrote on her Facebook page. “It all started with a taco, and it ended up being 34 items.”
Yarn on, girl!
