Tree Weavings

Art Start May 2017

I asked knitters I know if they had any spare yarn. They sure did! We had lots of great donations for these tree weavings- thanks everyone!  To make the loom, we took a wire and bent it into a circle. The warp strings were wrapped from top to bottom, with the lower half being gathered into a "trunk". Next we wove the leaves. Colors could be realistic, seasonal, or fanciful. See a sampling of the results below.
