OK, I have a chance to do something other than lurk for a change. First
question, does anyone have documentation for embroidered scrolls? I found one
embroidered scroll in a museum, but it's Elizabethan era. Does anyone have
any other information for earlier periods?
Second, for netting hairnets. I just followed the pictures of some original
hairnets in the Museum of London's Textiles and Clothing book and it came out
quite well. I like the idea of following a doily pattern though as I have
seen hairnets in museums since that have less cast-on stitches than the one in
the MoL book.
Lastly, I also like to do goldwork, though I tend to do more underside
couching and opus anglicanum than using purl etc. However I am planning to do
my arms in couched gold.
