Remember making loopy potholders as a kid?
After finding three pretty fancy wooden looms at a garage sale,
my 9-year-old son is weaving pretty fancy pieces
from yarn he has picked out of my stash.
With the help of Noreen in this YouTube video,
it was pretty easy for us to figure out how to get started.
Ta-da! There is a completed one.
Next time we will need to use bulkier yarns,
or even thick yarn made from old t-shirts.
The posts of these looms are far away from each other,
and, therefore, the edges very loose.
Once he has perfected his technique,
my little crafter wants to open his own Etsy shop.
His work is so good, I might just let him!
