I found out that I had 84 comments pending! And 100% of them were spam. Disappointing, but that’s the way it goes. Trashed them all.
I was working on some weaving this past few weeks. I made a 3 1/2 yard piece for a commission from a lovely lady in Thornwald. It’s a simple piece using the Snartemo II pattern but added extra cards to make it wider.
I found another pattern I wanted to try (above) an 11th century Latvian piece. It didn’t have any directions on how to thread or weave it other than it’s a skip hole design, so I guessed. Unfortunately I am doing it wrong.
It’s still lovely and I’ll keep weaving, and post the directions for it below, but I hope that I can find the directions to making the band that I wanted. Apparently it’s a “pebble” weave and while I can find lots of examples of what it’s supposed to look like, I can’t seem to find any directions on how to actually DO it. So I ordered a book that should arrive in a couple days.
18 cards. R = red; Y = yellow; O = empty hole
Start with AB on the top.
Turn 7 quarter-turns forward, then 7 quarter-turns away (or vice versa…)
Sorry it’s blurry. I don’t know how to fix this and I’m too grouchy and tired to figure it out.
