When I came home for the weekend I had a parcel waiting for me. It contained the head kerchief, klut, for my folk costume. This kind of coloured cotton kerchief was worn for minor dress-up occasions, like ordinary church service and such, by married and single women alike. For great holidays and events, like Easter, Christmas, weddings, etc. a huge, starched, white embroidered linen headdress would have been worn by married women, and ribbon headdresses by unmarried girls.
This one was hand woven by a woman who sells materials for folk costumes from my area, and gives classes on how to make them. I have ordered my patterns from her. I will have to hem the kerchief, and then it’s ready to be worn. A description and pictures of how I do that will come some other time.
I have knitted 6” on the spedetröja, with a patterned border at the bottom and at the sides. Not much else to say about that.
