Just thought I'd post pictures of the samples I made while creating some cords for the hand binding ceremony of a friend's wedding.

There's a few variations on the ceremony out there.  (I looked at so many of them while helping my friend--I was the maid of honor and person in charge of keeping my friend as sane as possible in spite of the stress.)  The variation they used had the couple hold arms (like a handclasp, only higher up on the forearm) while the pastor draped the cords over the hands.  Each cord had a set of vows to go with it.  At the end, the cords were loosely tied together and the couple pulled their arms out, leaving the knot in place.  The cords were later displayed at the head table and then above the fireplace at the house.

Oh, by the way, from this ceremony comes the phrase "to tie the knot."

These are beautiful!  I've been interested in card weaving but haven't had a lot of luck finding information on it.  How did you learn?  Can you recommend any good books or websites?

Very nice! 

Tablet weaving is something I'm hoping to get into this winter.  I've got the cards, I just need some guidance.  Luckily there is a weaver in my guild who's written a book on the subject and teaches classes, so hopefully she'll take me on as a student.
