Tri-loom Weaving Adventures, Part 1a

I have lost a whole week due to illness, and yet....I seem to have made quite a few things! But more about that later...today, for my last entry of the year, I want to feature my granddaughter Raven the Clever and Crafty.


She came over to spend the day with me on Friday the 22nd and I had all sorts of plans for things to do together. Unfortunately, that was the day I came down with my cold and wound up being housebound for the day. We still had a fine time, I thought, doing something I hadn't planned.





I introduced her to my 12" tri-loom. And she caught on to the weaving in a snap, finishing her first tri in about 20 minutes. Now here's the clever and crafty part.







She played around with the tri and decided it would make a neat sort of glove-wristlet. And it did, so she made another one to match, one that wasn't matchy-matchy (as they say on Project Runway.)







This is all Raven's design and work, with only a little assistance from me in helping to accomplish what she wanted, e.g., showing her how to make a strong loop by chaining and slip-stitching back through the chain.

She even figured out two ways to wear what we are calling Raven's Risters:












If Raven were here helping me write this blog entry, I'm sure she'd join me in wishing everyone a Clever and Crafty New Year!! Namaste!
