lots of weaving, not so much writing.
I have been weaving patriotic ribbon for a float in a local July 4th parade. There could be as many as 60 people walking along with the float. The ribbons are intended to be worn pinned in place with a small flag pin. I am on my 5th and final warp to make 59 bands. Yes, I can count. I may be one short. I should make an additional band-just to be safe. we will see how soon this one gets done.

Inkle details-the band is warped with 10/2 perle cotton. the weft is 8/2 or 5/2 perle cotton. Haven't made these for a while, but it is for a very good cause.

If you make it to the Delano 4th of July Parade, watch for the float, Remembering our Sons and Daughters.
