We had our first finished project for this week of camp!
It is always such a thrill to cut your first project off the loom!!
I make sure that the warp is long enough to make a scarf that will wrap around the neck and keep them warm. Isn't this such a nice scarf?
All of the campers are super excited each day when they come to camp. They start their weaving right away.
Our resident furry "helper". Notice that her leg is actually THROUGH the warp.
Of course Tux knows that if she is being cute, she will get lots of love from our students :o)
The first thing the campers did at snack was to check out their yarn. I asked them to eat before they took the yarns out.
After snack the chickens had to be played with for a bit.
This chick really loves this camper. He's the only one she will sit on quietly.
Now we were able to see exactly how our yarn hanks turned out.
We had to wring them out a little so they would dry faster.
Here they all are, just drying in the sun this afternoon. Tomorrow our campers will wind these into balls and weave with them if they choose.
Another camper is almost done with her scarf. Here she is learning how to use the hem stitch in order to get a really nice finish.
