I’ve been doing a bit more weaving lately. Risking repeating myself (although, duh, I can edit it later), here’s what I’ve done recently.
Back in February, I finished the green “bees feet” weave that I did in really fine thread. It took me about two years to finish all of it. What was I thinking? I dunno, but it turned out really great!
Then I warped up a couple pieces in blue and yellow in the Snartemo II pattern. This is the period skip-hole weave that goes together really fast and is beginner-level EASY! I really like this one.
After that, I did a woven piece for Baron Evrard in the Birka 22 pattern. I still need to get that to him. This one is a more advanced level piece that requires following a particular order of turning cards in opposite directions. It’s easy to get yourself turned around (get it…turned around?)
And I did another piece in WSU Cougar colorway…
Then I warped up a new piece (after I found my Applesies book again!), pattern #11. This is listed as “challenging”. This one has 50 steps to the repeat.
I’m not memorizing this ever.
The one thing I really need to do is make new kirtles for the camping season. I need someone to measure me because doing it yourself is difficult/nigh impossible.
