Winter includes many necessary tasks. Now the following are done: seeds ordered, taxes prepped, sales tax filed and paid, etc. Now I clean and weave between harvest dates. I am finishing off a test warp. I thought it would make two rugs, but I have enough warp for a smaller third rug with the remaining balls from three worn out wool blankets
I am trying out something new – I had read about this in a Shaker rag rug book. Two fabrics are twisted and then woven to form diagonal lines.
Twisting in opposite directions can be used to form a chevron type pattern.
I have done this twice with a single shot of grey between the twists of opposite directions
Here is the rug so far. I look forward to taking what I learned from the warp trial and the twist experiment and incorporating that into future rugs!
