Inspired by sprang egg covers made by Sylva Cekalova, I blew out a couple of eggs, and made some sprang covers. Guess we're having omelet for supper.
I've been experimenting. The first one I started with a 6 inch warp (the red one) ... too long. The yellow one was next, at 5 inches initial warp length, also too long. The 3rd one (lavender) started as a 4 inch warp .. and that was the right length. I used a 2/8 silk, and set up 30 loops (60 threads). It took about 45 minutes per egg, warping, working, and finishing.

Carol acknowledges that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. Carol also acknowledges that sprang is part of many indigenous traditions and found in various forms all over the world. Let us re-discover this technique together.
