This perfect stick was sitting on the sidewalk in front of our house for a few days.
I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
That Y would be great for a little bit of weaving, I thought.
First, you need a stick. Go outside and get one.
For the warp, I used some lengths of yarn that had been used to tie a hank of yarn together, so they’re basically scrap. They were already tied with huge ugly knots, which I just left.
The weft on this project is a bit of leftover yarn (which you don’t quite get the feeling of as well as you do in the original project I knit with it). How much you need will depend on the size of your stick, but I think I used less than a full arm’s length. I tied it to the bottom, but then tied the ends to itself when I was done weaving.
This is a wobbly, messy project that requires surrendering to where the yarn wants to go. At least it did for me.
I love projects like this where you don’t really think, just let intuition and the physical memory of how to make a thing take over.
That’s the best kind of creativity to me.
I feel like I need to hang this somewhere or do something else with in. Maybe it can dangle from my yarn curtain.
Does this sound like a fun project to you? I’d love to know if you try it out, and if you share pictures be sure to tag me with #ourdailycraft.
