A New Rug Project
I unthreaded to just before the halfway mark and figured it all out, except that I hadn't noticed 2 sleying mistakes until I'd already woven way more than I wanted to take out. I cut it off when finished so that I can resley and will hopefully get 2 more rugs out of the deal,which won't have the mistake in them.
I love blocks of colour and optical illusions; such cool results from an easy weave.
Rug is cut off the loom. I'll retie the warp after resleying the first block. I'm going to do one rug in 2 or 3 strands of heavy wool. The other one I'm considering doing as a multi colour weft. There is nothing special about this weave structure. It's just a log cabin done with rags for the dark colour and 4/8 cotton for the light. I'm happy with the results!
