Back to finger weaving

Postby kaywoodie » Thu May 25, 2017 8:20 am

So I have located all my old finger weaving and twining stuff. And I needed a new sling for Liebchen, my big .62 calibre Jäger rifle. One afternoon I threw this one together. A chevron weave out of a really nice workable hemp yarn. VERY durable stuff!!! Took it to the woods last week. Also very comfortable

Then I'd get to tell them a tall tale of how this mysterious man quotes Shakespeare, grills endangered species and doesn't go anywhere with out a bottle of rye.

I found my finger woven sash yesterday but no telling where my frock coat is. Might should make another, a frock coat and sash are great pieces of kit. Adopting some of the clothing of days gone by may prove beneficial.
