I worked some simple doubleweave pickup. And you can see I've left some of the warp in the center section unwoven, sitting on top of the cloth.
Then I worked a sprang braid using the unwoven warp.
It's supposed to look like two Ds (my initials). I don't think I like the shape of the inner curve - the part I did with the pickup. I think it should start further out from the vertical, and end more gradually, not so pointy.
I think I put enough warp on to try again. What do you think?
