Before the long week began we went to a Folk Festival in a neibouring town last Sunday, where we all (Except J the teenager) tried our hands on a weaving loom - it was a knitter's loom by Ashford. It was a lot of fun!
On the left was my effort... as it turned out Jelly was a natural at weaving, he even showed his dad how things worked. I definitely want a loom now, the question is which one? Any suggestions? :)
Now before I show you what happened with my TdF I have to share with you this cool tutorial for making a DIY Turkish spindle. I wanted to bring a spindle with me so I could still spin while on the road, then I saw someone on Team Wonder who made a Turkish spindle with double pointed needles. After reading her comments I also did a search and found the tutorial linked above, the instructions were very easy to follow and I made one in 20 minutes, all I used was three bamboo skewers from my cupboard, it didn't cost anything - always a bonus ;)
As you can see from the progress photos below it "does what it says on the tin" - I love it!
Thanks for dropping by, there is more fibre arts fun at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Indulge your creative side and join the party!
