working again

March 10, 2012

thanks to son Paul, who arrived with his tool box, the loom is working again 

 I got busy and finished the  rug

I’d like to say careful planning resulted in the perfect size but it was all luck

it feels nice on bare feet on a cold winter morning.

when I wove the weft I also wove a second wool weft for a more complex patterned rug

it still needs to be cut into lengths

I didn’t enjoy the weaving process, it was very slow and created endless amounts of  fluff


this can wait until I can cut it outside and weave it with the door open, by then, maybe I can find the notes I made to weave the pattern!

    I can see you have mastered your new camera. The pictures of the beach are great and isn’t great to have grown up children that can come to the rescue. I think I may have enough thrums to do a twice woven mat finally.

      Kathy – still working on the camera. don’t ask for help often but it is definitely great to have them close and always willing. think you may need a few more years of thrums, it takes more than you can imagine.

    A twice-woven rug! I love those. They use up lots of spare yarns and thrums because they don’t even have to be long lengths. Being double-sided is very handy too. I have one on my loom bench that I wove many years ago and it’s still very cushy under the tushy. LOL
