The Linen Piece, by Win Currie

A nephew was married a few weeks ago and as is the modern way the traditional ceremony/reception, honeymoon scenario was turned on its head. In brief the reception for rellies is to be held some weeks later and was accompanied by a request for no ‘boxed’ items. This was translated by the mother of the groom into ‘why don’t you weave something’. Here is what I did. I might add that this was no simple matter since I hadn’t done this sort of linen weaving for many years and so had go back to ‘Weaving linen’ 101. Not only that but I had to completely retie my loom ... twice... I did it wrong the first time.
