This is my seven-year-old, Timothy, with his second woven scarf:



He made it on an Easy Weaver child's loom. I'm shocked at how good he is at getting his edges even and packing down the weft. The first six inches of scarf aren't quite as neat as the rest, but it had been four or five months since he finished his first weaving project.

Oh yeah, he knits too. Smiley

Now, there is a face full of pride!!!  and rightly so! Smiley

Congrats on the fantastic scarf, Timothy!  It looks wonderful!  I'm very jealous.
Keep up the great work!  Can't wait to see #3.

Very neat!  I really like the almost ikat-ish pattern he ended up with because of the colors too!

Thanks for the compliments, everybody! I passed them on to Timothy.

Here's the Harrisville page http://www.harrisville.com/html/ewa_ewb.html . Tim uses the Easy Weaver A. Actually, we got it at a flea market for twenty dollars. It was still in the box, warped with the original yarn, and only a couple inches of weaving had been done by the original owner. What a steal!

Way to go! My 12 year old son is a fifth generation weaver, and has been weaving since he was about 5 or 6. I am glad now that his arms stretch all the way across our 48" loom so I don't have to sit on the loom bench with him to help him throw the shuttles. You have started a proud family heritage!

Go, Timmy, Go! I am teaching a textile class this summer at my Montessori school and I am going to tell the children all about Timmy and will show them your post so they can see that they can make a scarf too!

He knits too!? Timmy, you are my hero!

Awww!  He looks so proud!  And he should be! Cheesy Even I couldn't make something that great!  Weaving is definitely on the top of my "crafts to try list"

Thanks for all the comments, everyone! I hope Tim continues to weave as he gets older. I think he will, cuz I started making things at a very early age, and here I am on Craftster, thirty-five years later Cheesy

Wow! That looks so amazing, I'm totally inspired to buy a loom now. Can you make pieces as long as you want? Or are projects limited to the length of the loom?



He did a fantastic job, tell him to keep up the good work!

Wow, that is so awsome.  I wish my husband started crafting at a earlier age.  He sews and makes wonderful quilts but I just can't get him past the knitting/crocheting/other crafts are for girls thing.  He even used to be a craft director at a summer camp and he still wont budge.  grr...Anyway That scarf is so cool.  I wish I could weave.  My grandmother has this awsome loom just sitting in her house.  She doesn't do anything thing with it at all. 
Keep up the good work.

I was perusing Craft ezine yesterday morning and saw the link to the Craftster 2007 best projects thread, had to take a look, and ... there was my Timothy with his scarf in the weaving projects! It was so cool. I kept bragging on him all day, I'm sure I was quite the bore. Cheesy

When I showed Tim last night he said, "Uh... Uh... Uh!!" and fell on the floor. "I didn't know I was famous on the Internet!!" He's so proud. Smiley

He should be proud, that's amazing that he can do all that, especially while he's still so young! 

I have recently become addicted to crocheting, and now knitting and weaving are definitely some new things I would like to take up.  I always thought weaving was, for now, out of the question due to the price/size of looms, but I might look into that children's loom just so I can get started.

Very, very impressed with Timothy!
