Looming

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!

Update:

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.
