Yarn Crafts

Things have been a little quiet around the blog here lately. I am busy finalizing the projects for my spring kit. I still have a lot of work to do, but I am really excited about what we have planned. It is my goal to begin pre-ordering the first part of next month. So keep your eyes out for that.

Meanwhile, here are some links to some easy yarn handicraft projects:

Weave a change purse
Make a yarn doll
Learn to finger knit (the kids at the school where I used to work *loved* this)
Learn to make pom poms

There are tons of easy projects you can do using the Nifty Knitter (scarfs, hats, etc). We have a Knifty Knitter, but for some reason I haven't used it too much. I did make a scarf last winter with it and it was super easy. Here are some links to Amazon to get you started.

I promise to check back in a few times this week with an update on my tabletop garden (which has some major growth now) and some ideas for crafting with very young children.

Hey! Since you're working on your blog post on crafting with young children, I thought I'd let you know how we're doing. Samuel is 4.5. You sent us an e-mail in response to my question with a link to a plastic canvas craft at michaels.com. Well, I ended up finding a kit for $1 which included the canvas, different color yarn lengths and a plastic needle! We tried it tonight. He's not getting where to put the needle next, but he's also not ready to give up, so I think this is really a good start. Thanks!
