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.
