Among my closer circle of friends I am the only weaver. When I was a knitter I was the only knitter for a long time, but that changed as I made and remade friends with knitters. Many of those friends are creative, crafty people, too. Sewing is probably the one thing we all have in common, but I am only an occasional sewer.
A friend’s daughter has always been interested in the creative things I do – particularly art and weaving. Last Christmas I gave her a pin loom, which was a great way to familiarise someone with the basic structure of weaving. A month or two back I persuaded her to try plain weave on the Knitters Loom, and she took to it easily, so I knew it was time…
To give her a SampleIt loom, and a lesson.
Apparently I am now the most awesome gift-giver in all eternity.
Coincidently, I taught her to crochet a few weeks before, and she had really taken to it as well. It’s so gratifying to spread the fun of creativity!
