Sometimes my work includes working at a respite day where I'm in charge of the craft activity. I need to find something fairly simple but interesting as we don't have oodles of time. This month I've chosen circular weaving. All you need is a paper plate (or 2 together if they're feeble and flimsy like mine were!), acrylic yarn in different colours, scissors and maybe a plastic needle if you find it difficult to weave using your fingers.
Of course I had to have a go myself :)
I found a really good resource too. Mr E is my new art hero :) I did have some idea of what to do, but when I started off on my own, things didn't look quite right! This blog helped me realize I hadn't made the right numbers of spokes on my wheel - odd numbers are what you need - doh! Then you'll get that beautiful 'under, over, under, over' pattern. I'll leave Mr E to give you the instructions as he does it so well. (Follow link above).
Lovely. I'm wondering now what else I can create with my circles, I'm also thinking they could be quite addictive ...
