First lace with raw silk

After my wife started felting felt hats, we determined that tablet weaved laces are quite expensive to buy. As there are many tutorials on the net, and you do not need too much material, I decided to try this on my own. My first lace isn’t perfect, not only because I had no practice yet. The Material, self-dyed raw silk is quite difficult to weave, as I read afterwards…

Nevertheless, I am happy with it. I especially like the colors of the self-dyed raw silk (red from madder and blue from elder). This will surely not be the last lace I made.

Here you can see my first lace:
