Mother I need you!

I can not believe I have forgotten
how to weave ribbons...
My mother used to make them,
and I have made several also,
as a kid, a long time ago...

I have tried all morning,
and failed over and over.


I think I started with 5 strands (double yarn),


- or maybe it was 6 strands..?


No, it make more sense with 5... I think...
And I am pretty positive about
that I am suppose to start in the middle..


One strand from each side alternating...
- remember that part for sure...

This is still not right,
I have to go and practice some more...

The finger weaving, was it anything like this?

I once saw an old lady do it here, but unfortunately she closed down her store and moved, so I never had the chance to learn.

Yay, that's great, I'm happy I could help! :)
The method looked familiar from what I had seen. Here they call it "sash weaving", because that's how they make the sash that go with the traditional Quebecer costume.
