A Plethora of Plastic

Aine has a new-found obsession - her rainbow loom. One of her friends introduced her to the craft of rubber band bracelet making over a month ago. Hooked, Aine begged for her own. We went to three different stores before we found a loom for her and a stockpile of rubberbands (Michaels is currently the sole supplier of the loom where we live). She immediately set to work making everyone in our family as well as most of her friends and cousins bracelets. One afternoon at the park, she made another group of children bracelets exhausting her supply of bands. She has watched videos online for new patterns, read the booklet and experimented with her own designs. Her enthusiasm quickly spread to her cousins and soon there were three more looms in the group. She is quite proud of her work and carries that loom with her all over the place crafting as she goes.

  2. I saw that there is a "travel loom" with only 4 pegs. You know, in case it needs to fit in a pocket :)
