So with just a little bit more than a week left for the Drachenwald 20 year celebration I am weaving myself a new belt for the viking outfit I have worked on since March.
And it is not just any pattern. A very talented friend of mine – Mervi whos blog you can find here – has co-authored a book on Finnish iron age tablet weaving that is to be released the 20th of June!
This summer she will travel some markets and teach the tablet weaving from the book so she needed a test subject to teach in English and lucky me – I got a pattern from the book before it was released! 🙂
I can not even begin to tell you how awesome this is and I went from not really understanding tablet weaving to actually understand what she means when she says that the tablets talk to you!
So here is my weaving this far:
The book is bilingual (Finnish/English) and available for preorder now!
Don’t get the Finnish scare you away – they take orders through e-mail as well if you don’t understand Finnish!
You can find more information and order the book here! Or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
