I was amazed at how well the boys did with the weaving. The Wolf Pup is a direct tie-up loom, so they had to use two treadles at once for plain weave. Above is Zane, who is five. He talked to himself as he wove. “One and three, push the yarn, bubble, BEAT.” Look at the delight on that face! He’s loving the weaving, especially the beating part.
Here we have a wayward yarn. I love Beck’s concentration.
It takes a village–gotta get that beating done! And where are those treadles?
They’ve left for home now. I’ll find bits and pieces of toys for several days in all the nooks and crannies. I am very grateful to have so much time with them this year. Love hearing those sweet voices saying “Grandma.” I’ll miss them, but …
Now I get to return to my own weaving. Plus, I have to dye yarns for a commission piece. I’m really looking forward to this project, as it will have colors that I don’t use very often. I just hope that we don’t get icy/freezing weather while I’m trying to get dyeing done.
