When holding classes in sewing I always try to teach edge weaving. It’s so lively when done properly. The only issue is that I’ve never done it myself. I know how to do it but I’ve never just … done it. 😦
That’s why I forced myself to do it. Not to make it easy for myself I started on a pale yellow hood with dark blue yarn so all my mistakes would show! No, not really, but that was the best yarn I had close by hand that day.
I’ve seen better but I’ve also seen worse. It’s OK and I think I can wear it in daylight. The mistake I made was not pulling the weft hard enough so the table weave was placed ”around” the edge instead of ”on the edge”.
I had to try to weave with a rigid heddle too. I did that in Minden having the warp stretched between my foot and my belt. Tricky to get the tension right but the weave is ”very authentic”. It’s just a small needle case. Nothing important.
Here is the ugly start:
Here is the end. Improvements shows.
In the Battle of Wisby camp there will be two classes in edging techniques. I will be part of those!
