Jumper for Oliver & Cardy for Lily

Start on projects for Oliver and Lily

Oliver has chosen Red Rascal from the second Sublime book for Children and Lily wanted Daisy Crockett.

Here are the pictures from the pattern book

I have chosen pretty much the colours that they are modelled in above.

So far I have done most of the back for each. The plan is that they are ready for Christmas, but we will see!

Inkle weaving

It's been a while since I gave blogged and certainly a long time since I have done any weaving. I was inspired at the Living History Fair at the Warwick Exhibition Centre to get my Inkle Loom out of the shed. It still had a failed attempt at tablet weaving that I must have started about 4 years ago! Well it was not very good, but I used some of the warp to set up my ridged heddle. It was a bit rough, but I got the idea.

After some more inspiration from the Internet I warped up with wool to make Lily a belt for Re-enactments next year.

Here it is so far
