A few days ago Ken needed a break. He started a building project; he is taking a very old cart and converting it to a portable chicken coop. I also needed a break from produce work; I love tomatoes and peppers, but I have sorted many this season… So, I headed upstairs to a loom that has about enough warp for one more rug. I was experimenting with two different warps to figure out how I want to set up a long, multi rug warp for next winter. I also wove my first wool rags – old blankets.
The first rug was mostly from a blue blanket with some grey and beige pink border stripes.
Now I am deciding what to combine with an old army green color. Here are some strips I think will work. Once this rug is off the loom I will plan the warps for both the main floor and upstairs looms. I want to set one up for some Scandinavian style rugs and the other will probably be a combination of either high contrast or deep, saturated colored warp like I have done in the past
So, that is what we do for a break – Stay tuned for coop and rug progress!
