My boys have always called weaving on my rigid heddle loom “looming.” I haven’t gotten the loom out for awhile, but my sister, who teaches a middle school class for severely disabled students, wants to work on weaving with them. So this morning we dragged out various bins of yarn and I taught her how to direct warp my 24″ Kromski loom. Which, of course, I forgot to take pictures of. But here she is weaving away on her soon-to-be-a-scarf.
I especially like that she matched her blue yarn to her blue hair. And that warping the loom forced me to clear off the dining room table.
We also have a birthday boy in the family this weekend. Eight!
She wove all day and finished the scarf that we just warped this morning! Now she’s deciding what tomorrow’s scarf should look like.
