Sheperd’s budget

29.09.2016 by Rotschopf in Textile work

Since I have a sheperd’s weapon now and a sheperd’s instrument, I thought, well then I can go full sheperdess! Although it is very likely, I will never be able to get to a sheep-herd any time soon, in case I do get the chance, I already have the equipment! Yay!

I just wanted to give you a little glimpse on a technique which is fairly new to me and which I am about to try out for the first time, filet knitting or netting.

Unfortunately I could not find a lot of information about the technique in its medieval form online. I was very impressed by this tutorial here from Via Nostra (Thanks a lot!),  which uses the techniques described by Therese de Dillmont and Katrin Kania.

I asked my husband to film me while netting.

Silkknitting

02.12.2015 by Rotschopf in Textile work

A small Work-in-progress to go:

I struggle with knitting for a while now. The basic techniques of medieval knitting are not complicated at all, it is mostly just plain stockinette from what I have seen in original pieces. The patterns are made in Fair Isle-Technique.

BUT the original pieces from the 14th century are all made from fine silk thread which requires the use of very fine, but stable needles. Nikolaus has made some really nice ones for me from brass and I could finally start working using very nice plant dyed silk in green and brown from Marled Mader. I am going for a nice little bag for Nikolaus.
