I've packed away my rug weft possibilities for now. I've got to get back to my regular production. Spring is coming! Before I did that though, I got 3 more rugs done on that warp.
The fluffy fringy one was fun to weave, although slow, as all of these are to do!! I'm still not sure how much I need to make a rug so grabbed 3 bags of selvage material and divided 2 of them in half before starting to weave. I think it ended up being 63 inches long. Surely someone will like that by their bed or in front of a sofa?
On my Thelma loom I've had placemats for a long time. They kept calling me but Nilus won with the rugs on it. I want to change out that sectional warp beam for a regular one so that I have 2 looms for my regular production warps, so needed to get the warp off. I'd woven 2 placemats last year. On Wednesday I decided to weave it off.
Also, the regular production warps will be back. I've almost finished this totally black warp on Nilus. There are only about 8 more bobbins left to weave on it. Not the most exciting warp but I sell alot of black, so black it is! These will be 2 jackets and 4 vests.
On Saturday we were supposed to have our gutters replaced. It rained. So, today they were supposed to do it. It's raining...... At least we got our roof replaced much earlier. There are still alot of blue tarps around Knoxville from the storm in April. Hopefully in the next day or two we'll have some nice days and they can replace the gutters for us. We're still waiting for the weather to be right for the drain field to be replaced. Got that estimate last week.....and we're ready for them to do it. We need the rain but maybe if we could have a week or two of nice sunny weather........
So I'll keep weaving. I have to plan out my warps now for spring. I will order yarns to fill in where I need them to git er done!! Black will be a dominant color. I don't like to weave or wear black but alot of people do so that's what I weave. I picked up some accent yarns at a knitting shop recently so they will be rotated in fairly quickly because just that bit of yarn can give a vest that little something that it needed.
Til next week.
