I have not finished the looper rug that is on the rug loom yet, I got distracted. I thought I could at least share with you some pictures of my progress so far.
After a tiny bit of sampling, I figured out that it takes 4 rows of loopers on the rug to make 2 inches, and around 7 loopers to make it across the loom. Once I had that information, I made some rough chains with a stripped rug in mind.
I think it is going well, even if it is a little fiddly.
Close up, these loopers are very different than the ones I used on the previous rug. These are heftier and at the same time shorter, that is why I had to sample.
You can easily see the difference in the selvedge tuft on the 2 rugs. This second rug will be much more substantial all around, and it will be fun to compare the two once they are off of the loom.
I hope to finish this rug this week or next, because I have many more color combinations of loopers that I want to try, but life, and distractions, often get in the way.
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
