This week we did weaving. Now, in all honesty, the last time I did weaving was when I taught my daughters how to make pot-holders on those square looms with loops of cotton jersey. Does anyone else remember making those?
I also have some vague memories of "Indian" basket-weaving being taught at Jones Beach. My mother used to love to take us to those sorts of activities there.
The weaving we learned how to do was with a similar fabric but long and unlooped. I cut off some long pieces of various colors and then started my "masterpiece." I think I bit off more than I could chew, as the saying goes, since I took a large loom and refused to just weave one color at at time lines. I started one of my abstract inspirations. And since we could take them home with yarn, I sure idid.
