My sweater hasn't made much (read: any) progress this week, but I have been trying out my new marudai and doing some sewing.
Setting up the marudai for braiding took absolutely ages - who'd have thought winding some bobbins could be so complicated?! Getting the traditional japanese knots right proved to be quite tricky. Got there in the end and made a flat braid ....
Work in progress
Working on the marudai is really different to using the braiding disk I had before... This braid was just a test to sort out how it all worked using some cheap yarn from my stash. Lots of learning and things to do differently next time!
The sewing machine has also been set up again and I've got some more purses on the go, but the light has gone now, so no photos!
