So my daughter wants to learn to weave...
Or is it? I mean, you go through yarn really fast when you weave, right? That probably means the kid will end up with her own yarn stash. Or I will at least end up buying lots more yarn. And then there's the question of what to do with the random strips she makes. We only need so many scarves and pot holders.
And what happens if I get into it? I already have a very doom-y number of projects lying around my house at various levels of completion. And my stash occasionally begins to frighten me. Or maybe I can let her use up the less loved portions of my stash. There we have it! This is not just an education project, or a keep the big kid from scaling the house project, but a stash reduction project. She likes weird acrylic yarn. Heck, she likes ALL yarn. This definitely has some possibilities.
Yeah, she's probably getting a little loom for her birthday. Gotta start 'em young and all that. And she can operate a loom by herself, unlike knitting, crochet, and knitting looms. Because mommy already has too much yarning to do.
