Started a horn project
« on: October 10, 2019, 04:56:30 pm »
While I have been waiting for several horn blanks to be shipped, I decided to start on the carry strap. Several frustrating hours into the project I realized I had forgotten all the techniques for finger weaving woolen yarn. Then I remembered an inkle loom maniac owed me a small favor. I contacted her and listed several colors I wanted. Within several hours she sent me a photograph of the finished powder horn woven of hand dyed woolen yarn. I will finish off the ends with leatherwork appropriate to the powderhorn when it is finished.

A wee bit of time with a lathe and some walnut. We have a plug!
