A Diversion

My old liene found another purpose, this time to line the embroidered coif. After all the hours I put into the thing, I didn't want to accidentally ear out the hanging threads in back. Once the lining was installed, I began to add loops to the bottom hem so I could thread a ribbon through so I could gather the cap and tie it on. After the third loop or so, I decided that this detail was pretty, and I would add at least a second row to give a lacy feel.

I was and still am a bit leery about making my own lace, as all those bobbins and carefully counting, pulling, and reweaving threads feels a bit intimidating. This feels nice and approachable, so I'm glad.
