Looking at my pictures I've posted, the rugs look so simple and complete. When you're faced with a pile of selvedges in different colors and you're not sure what you're going to put together, it sure isn't!
I did know I wanted a black warp for this last batch of rugs. Black on the ends would work and you don't really see the warp the rest of the time. The fluffy selvedges take over the whole color scheme.
Thankfully, I'm now back to my regular production and rhythmically throwing the shuttle. Rug weaving has nothing rhythmic about it. You plod along, with the thick weft, creating a nice thick rug that will be nice to walk on. Weaving yardage is more relaxing, just back and forth movements of the shuttle.
On a side note, we scheduled a dye day for this past week. We set up Wednesday afternoon, after the quilters left and a couple of people who couldn't make it Thursday got their projects done. Then we were there Thursday from 9am til about 4:30pm getting our own and the Tuesday Weavers projects dyed. We had several new people join us and I think everyone had a blast!
I spent Saturday rinsing and rinsing and rinsing. They're all hanging up to dry now...
Until next week, keep weaving!
