Sometimes, you just have to take a step back and take a look at the skills that come before you can thread a needle and assemble the thing.
I hope you enjoy this deep dive into some tablet weaving (AKA card weaving). It has certainly been a while!
Fun fact though: This was the kind of thing I was known for in my reenactment group while I studied at university, so it isn’t entirely unknown to me. But much like knitting, I struggle to figure out ways to make a weaving video interesting and engaging, since it involves a lot of repetition to get the desired result. I tried to go for a more story-based approach on this one. Did it work?
