Bandweaving - New start

It is now a year and a half since I took a band weaving class at Sätergläntan. A couple of weeks after the class I tried weaving at home, but got very frustrated with my poor result.
I do know that there is no "quick fix" when learning new skills - but sometimes there is just not enough patience available.
These last weeks I have been thinking about making a new try. I bought a yarn better suited for band weaving than the ones that I used a year ago. I searched through our "wool/yarn room" to find the necessary tools and started to warp the yarn.
I even spent a couple of hours  weaving. It felt much better than the previous attempts a year ago.
I chose a simple pattern from the Sami-tradition. I have to start with something that is not complicated so that I can focus on the basics of the weaving. I especially like the colours - so typical for the Sami bands.
Autumn has come and today was a beautiful day. We took a walk to the Iron Age burial site nearby.

  1. Da har vi samme garnsticka, jeg har nettopp brukt den for første gang, helt underbar. Er du fornøyd?

    1. Jag tycker att den är toppen! Vi har köpt en var. Fantastisk finish. Vi hoppas att allt är bra med dig.

  2. Den bandstkickan verkar vara jättepraktisk. Vacker dessutom. Finns den på Sätergläntan, eller var? Hälsningar Ulla-Britt

  3. Det der ble da vel fint :)
