Looper Rug

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
