The entire Tatted Ring of Bloggers... you all inspire me to keep on tatting! So, fellow tatters, please consider this my message to you that I "heart" your blogs!

Knitspot by Anne Hansen... Anne's gardening adventures make me want to live exclusively on fresh vegetables, but I really read her blog because of her wonderful lace knitting!

Now, on to business... my peg looms arrived yesterday, so I'm headed off to school early! Our library theme this year is "Weave your way through the library!" The kids are really excited about this, and I realized the first day that one inkle loom was not going to be enough to satisfy all these students! So, I ordered 3 peg looms... one each for the easy reader section, nonfiction section, and fiction section. The kids get to weave one row for every book they read. The kids have only been checking out books for a week, but some of them have already read enough books to weave several rows! One 4th grader has come in to check out a new book each morning! I love working with kids!


  1. What a great idea! Getting kids interested in fiber arts early is great. When are you going to teach them to tat?

  2. Super idea, especially to get kids reading books.

  3. What a cool library theme, "Weave your way through the library!". I love it! How cool to encourage kids to both read and learn about the fiber arts. You're the best librarian ever!

  4. Thanks everyone! I don't know about the best librarian ever, but I do enjoy my job!

  5. That is the neatest idea! I'm so glad children are still inhaling books. I lived in the library while in school ~ I learned to read at five; and since I was an only, it opened the whole world to me. I was also blessed with comprehension and recall of what I'd read. Reading enabled me to learn to Tat! Learning from books is great for one who has grown to appreciate being a loner.

  6. What a fun project - I want to be a kid in your library!

  7. Wow, what a great idea! You really are encouraging these kids to read, and be creative. Excellent!!! You get my vote for "best librarian"!

  8. What a wonderful idea and such a unique theme! Those kids are lucky to have you around.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
