Better than selfies

Someone else took a few photos while I was setting up.

setting up close up
I’m in the Anglo Saxon village at West Stow, making a header band for WWL weaving. The pattern is a very simple Egyptian diagonals, reversed every ten picks. The yarn is 17/2 wool, which will hopefully give me around 14 epcm, which is appropriate for the period. The TW weft (wwl warp) is all one colour so to make two colour cloth I will use the grey/brown as weft on the WWL.

  1. These women ar so clever. I have a piece of tablet weaving on my Anglo-Saxon costume and it is so intricate. Lots of patience required, and no need for today’s rush to finish something.I agree – so much better than a selfie!
