Basket Weaving with …
Asher. Asher is six and would probably tell you what he loves most is to play Minecraft. But his Oma (me), doesn’t play Minecraft so this month we wove a basket together. It was lots of fun for both of us. His mom said I could share a few pictures with you.
Step one – Right side or Wrong side?
Weaving the Base – “I like this part, Oma”
Locking the base.
Weaving the first row.
“Those rows were hard. Maybe I’ll just use it as a hat.”
“Row four is a lot easier, Oma.”
“Oma, you hold it, I’ll weave.”
Almost done! Looks like a basket!
Tucking – “This is kinda hard, Oma”
Lashing Asher’s way – “You hold it Oma and I’ll pull”
“Look what I made!”
Also on these visit Asher took great pleasure in whipping Oma at Candyland and taking hikes in the woods with Opa.
Nice job Asher!!
I love and learn from your blog, thanks, but this story will inspire my 5 yr old grandson to basket weave as we both learn (newbie 9 mos & counting). Thanks to Asher also for being a role model.
