weaving


Seeing her mama weaving got her interested in doing her own. So I set her up with a cardboard loom. She chose white yarn.

She learnt how to thread a needle, what warp and weft are, and how to do plain weave. Concepts weren't taught, rather I just use the terminology as I work or guide her and of course she picks it up.

She's working on a blanket for her 'baby'.

    1. it really is fun handwork, and it's a nice balance between easy and just enough challenging for little ones... gets them into the Flow ;)

  3. Beautiful! Love the idea of the marker holding the yarn up on the "loom". Definitely using that next time we weave. Thanks!
