This is a project I’ve wanted to do with the kids for the past few years, so when I found a collection of my old yarn in my childhood closet a few weeks ago, I decided to bring it down to Bainbridge with this craft project in mind.
Last week we went for a long beach walk in search of wishbone sticks (which are surprisingly more difficult to find than we thought!), and the following morning we woke up to unusual grey skies and misty weather. It was the perfect morning to spend inside, curled up together with our wishbone sticks and the basket of yarn. Ivy and Quin were especially excited about this project, and the three of us sat on the day bed quietly weaving our yarn.
It’s surprising how addictive this project is — once we had finished our weavings, we were back out on the beach searching for more wishbone sticks. I’m excited to return to the beach this weekend for more weaving (I’ve heard rainy weather is on the forecast!).
