This past week we had our first session of kids Fiber Camp. Our Assistant Store Manager, Leslie Ann once again ran a faboo camp that was enjoyed by one and all. Since J1 was off at sleepaway golf camp this week, I thought our 1/2 fiber camp would be perfect for J2. He had a great time.
He made felt:
Not sure if he was going with a Red Sox theme or if he was hungry and channeling a pepperoni pizza. . . .
He spun some yarn:
Since I have never attempted to spin, I cannot possibly offer any color commentary.
J2 did a GREAT job dyeing yarn:
Look at his finished skein – it’s really beautiful:
Now, his knitting, well, his knitting is another story. And it’s not a good story. Here’s his first attempt which we finally just cut off:
Most of the good parts you see are mine.
Most of this second attempt is also either my knitting or Barbara’s:
He’s suppose to have 20 stitches but he continually ends up with way more. Between yarnovers, slipped stitches and who knows what else, he’s back to another bit of a mess:
Maybe I can sneak him into session 2 next week. It’s completely full but I’ve got connections. . . . . .
