Here’s a recap of what we were doing, before the Easter break:

WEEK 5.  FUNKY FIBRES & FINGERLOOP BRAIDING

NU FUNKY FIBRE

The blue painted fingernails, belong to the lovely new Funky Fibre member, Erva. Below she’s learning to crochet, for the first time.

Welcome, Erva, & keep practicing holding the yarn for crocheting & not as knitting!

FINGERLOOP BRAIDING

Kaiya showed us an old, (but new to us), craft called Fingerloop braiding.

She used garden string, any strong yarn will do, wrap 5 loops around a solid base, have 3 loops on 3 fingers of one hand, & 2 loops on two fingers of the other hand.

After slipping loops between fingers, a plaited fabric is made.

Of course, Kaiya made it look easy, but I suppose with practice (& You Tube), great things can be achieved.

Such as this ‘split’ braid.

SASQUATCH BOOTS

Kaiya’s an avid camper, and as not to mess up the inside of the tent, the family wear these warm & cosy boots…

New & experienced crafters are very welcome.

Looking forward to seeing you, if you’re a new or returning Funky Fibre.

So, until tomorow, keep crafting, keep creating.

Peace & Love
