Another young weaver

At the moment my 4 year old granddaughter is staying with me. She also wanted to weave a scarf and I'm surprised that she is managing very well!
I've tried to make a video of her, it looks like it is successful to upload.
It is as well that the loom and warp are strong when you watch her weaving!
Here a photo of her weaving, she managed almost 19cm today. It's the same warp as her brother but she wants to weave with pink.......
Not sure if she will be able to finish the whole scarf this week. Next week she'll have to go back to school so at the latest she is going back home on Saturday.
Giving her mummy a well earned break, as it can be very demanding, a 4 year old around you ;-)
But we are having a lovely time together, though today started very early, 4:30 :-(
Luckily I did get her to go back to sleep again....

My own weaving: I'm still weaving the last warp and now weaving the 4th and last towel.
I've been so busy these last few days that I just collapse in the evenings not doing any weaving at all ;-)


  1. Margreet how lovely and talented your grandchildren are! It makes me miss my own children (somewhat) at that age. I know what you mean by them being so very busy that you collapse at then end of the day.

  2. Wow, look at her go! And those selvedges are excellent - she must have a really good teacher :-)

  3. Rose: ja, dat zijn kleindochters. Mijn jongste kleindochter is ook helemaal gek van die kleur!
