I’ve been working on a couple of different projects over the last few weeks since we returned home. One of them I can’t reveal yet since it’s a special gift for a friend and I don’t want it to be public until it’s given – stay tuned for that in a few weeks!
The other quick project is a set of inkle woven bookmarks made to be given as largesse when our local baroness goes to an event in Colorado – the Kingdom of the Outlands.
I made a batch of kingdom-themed bookmarks a few years ago that were smaller than these, about 3 inches long. These are about six and a half inches and I ended up with 13 of them from one warp of my loom.
Just a basic weave for these, based on the kingdom’s device, which has an embattled border. It’s always nice to see the pattern develop once the weaving starts.
I have to sit down and watch a tutorial on pick-up weaving so I can branch out a bit. I took a class at Pennsic, but my brain still hasn’t really absorbed the process yet.
