A blog reader contacted me the other day and asked if I’d ever designed a Greek alphabet for pin loom squares. I hadn’t. Till now.
The Greek alphabet has 24 letters, 10 of which are totally different from English letters. Thought I could get away with only designing those 10 (because I’ve already designed the 26-letter alphabet), but no. In order to accommodate letters like Delta and Lambda, I had to squish and squeeze and minimize. Thus, I’ve had to redesign all the English/Greek letters to match the font of the new ones.
Test weaving got old, so some of the squares in the photos may look off-center or may have an occasional U3 that doesn’t look so good. Feel free (of course) to experiment adding or subtracting till the letter looks the way you want it to. Any samples that are off-center in the photo, that were also correctable (such as Kappa), have been redrawn on the design chart. There are a couple with multiple examples (Tau in particular). Either I couldn’t decide which I liked best or I got sick of reweaving.
Wow! Yeoman’s work, Sue! Congratulations!
Thanks! I’ve never heard the expression yeoman’s work before. Thank you for teaching me something new.
The Greek letters look awesome!
