The Latest and Greatest

P is spending most of her spare time with the new latest and greatest thing - a Band-a-Loom.

Its basically weaving with small elastic bands.  I rather like the abstract patterns they make.

My daughter has the same type of thing, except her loom is a rectangle. She's made a bunch of bracelets.

What will they think of next? My generation did it all with basic throw aways like cotton reels and nails.

Pat Tillett said...

Yep! My granddaughter has made a ton of bracelets with this thing. I think I have about 10 of them.

amazing the new ideas that come up. I think back to a wooden cotton real, with four nail in the top and weaving wool around them and creating a spider-web effect until a long-long woven tail evolved through the hole in the cotton reel ....french-knitting it was called then. I'm sure P is enjoying this new-found craft and making everyone a bracelet maybe?
