Yet More Wickelbander

I’ve started another pair of wickelbander (or winingas).  Norse/Anglo-Saxon leg wraps.

I’m going to be doing them in Jaggerspun Maine Line 2/8 rather than Harrisville Shetland.  They will be blue and yellow.

I’ll be weaving a broken warp-chevron twill with divisions at 6/4/10/4/8/6/4/6/8/4/10/6/4.  Sett is 20 epi.  I’m also going to try a tubular selvedge.

Building a Warp-Weighted Loom

As a fall project I’ve decided to build a warp-weighted loom.  I have plans drafted and wood purchased.  Wish me luck!
