So this happened today
My guys have decided they want to learn to spin. My wheel is rarely available (I usually have some precious fiber on it), but I’m between projects right now and put some fiber on for them to play with it. Little Buddha has gotten very serious about it and really wants to learn. For now, I’m giving him only a little instruction, and mostly just letting him play around with the wheel and the fiber, fixing problems as they occur. He’s having a good time.
He did, however, cut a little chunk out of his hair, with the idea that he would spin it. That part wasn’t as heart-warming, but I have to admit – what spinner hasn’t looked at every possible source of fiber in the house and wondered how it would spin? (he was also eyeing the cat with spinning intentions)
After a good bit of spinning, he then found his old potholder loom (an Advent activity from two years ago), with a partial project still on it. He picked it up and got to weaving. He has plans to to weave a few squares to sew together for a sleeping bag for his favorite stuffed animal.
So basically, my heart went all ‘splodey today.
Oh my, of course it would. How lovely that he just thinks making stuff is a good idea!
Oh my gosh so sweet. This just warms my heart. Also my GOODNESS is he suddenly looking gangly!
Adorable! The Buss Lightyear jammies are too cute.
I love it! I cannot wait for the day that I teach my little guy how to knit.
*Love*. I hope Silas has some interest in knitting/yarn when he’s big enough!
