Stick weaving

A while ago I picked up a set of weaving sticks from eBay so I’d have something different to do if I go to a reenactment event. Yesterday I tried using them for the first time.   So far I’ve woven over seven feet of braid.  I’m pretty pleased with that.  It’s easy to do, very portable and makes a really nice fabric.  I shall definitely have to invest in a bigger set of sticks, maybe even an actual peg loom.

This first effort will be added to my vike kit to be used as a belt. I’ll be trying some with colours next.
