Summer co-op camp: day two

Wednesday was a more low-key camp morning at our shadiest local township park. I brought piles of washed wool, some dyed in kool-aid, and the girls experimented with carding, spinning, and plying wool. I was rather delighted with the results and itchy to spin more myself.

The playground, trails, and water mister won their share of child attention, and I did a lot of chasing after Reuben (though perhaps, again, not as much as I should have), so we didn't get to all of the wool introduction activities I had hauled along (felting or weaving or sewing wee delights with felted wool sweaters). But later we might :). For now, wool bracelets it is!

Oh, it looked amazing and sooo much fun! We are sorry we had to miss it. ( family vacation with 15 of my craziest but wonderful immediate family) Hope things are going well. Can't wait to see how the rest of the week went.

Oh dear! Marian is looking so grown up. She looks a lot like her daddy in the close-up photo.
