Twine to the Left

I managed to learn how to twine a pair of threads to the left on a background of interlinked språng.  Here's a video I made, if you would like to do it too.

And I made a wee bag.  Here it is still at the flat stage, where I've just taken it off the frame.

The idea is to combine twining threads going to the right and threads going to the left to imitate certain Coptic textiles.  I doubt that I will do much in the way of reproductions or pieces inspired by Coptic interlinked pieces with intertwined patterns, but it's good to have at least done the technique.
