I know, I'm supposed to post on Monday. It's almost there, after 10pm Sunday evening and I just realized that tomorrow is full. I won't have time to get on the computer all day. So, since no one else posts on Sunday (which was my original day to post), I thought I'd go ahead and post now so I don't forget to do it at all, especially since I actually had 3 days to work in the studio this past week!!
I wove rugs. It wasn't a very long warp, only about 11 yards long and I got 6 rugs out of it.
The ends are serged but not hemmed yet. I don't usually do fringe.
Love this earth toney rug. The green and purple really set it off.
The job's a bit messy especially when you pull out a bag of several colors and then try to find the ends and divide it in half so part can be on the top of the rug and the rest on the bottom but it's great fun to put colors together.
I've got 2 more weeks where I can just weave rugs or placemats, whatever I want before I get back to production. The yarn order has been sent and my looms are slowly being filled with projects. I know that if I was weaving rugs all the time, it'd get really old, fast. However, by blocking out a month or so each year to do it, it stays fun. I don't know if I'll keep weaving loopers because I do have a nice stash of fabric that needs cutting, but by varying what I do, I sure can't get bored!
Here's hoping the new warp is finished by Friday and I have to wind another one. Until next week, keep weaving , stay warm and have fun!
