Largesse Tourney Weaving

A lot of the weaving I have been doing lately is for the largesse tourney being run at Pentamere Twelfth Night, the Pentamere Dirty Dozen Donation Derby.

I am making two sets of inkle weaving: one based on the Midrealm pale (white with a red stripe) and one based on the Barony of Cynnabar (red, white, and black).

I have been playing with beaded inkle weaving, tubular inkle weaving, and a little bit of pick-up inkle weaving.  Below is a simple baltic pick-up weaving of the Cynnabar tower.

For those not familiar with the term “largesse,” in the SCA we use it to mean items that people make that they donate to their Kingdom or local group.  Those groups then use those items as prizes or gifts in tournaments, for people who have done them favors, for people who have won awards, to give out to children who come to big events, and so on.  It’s a really wonderful system in many ways!

Enjoy the pictures of weaving!
