Tablet Weaving

with No Comments

A couple of years ago I began doing tablet weaving. Everyone I knew at the time was trying it out (I was studying archaeology) and I thought why not give it a try. It was much easier than I had lead myself to believe. At first I tried out some simple patterns with some quite thick thread. However, this was way to boring and I never finished it. They I tried using some linen thread my mother had lying around. Much better! And much more fun!
I began doing more complicated patterns. So far I have done the Birka 22 motif in blue and white from a pattern. I have done some stuff of the top of my head, played around with letters and tried to figure out how to do some of the Mammen motifs.
