I finished these two rugs a couple of months ago but perhaps because of the colours I didn´t come around to show them before Easter. Luckily there´s no snow on the ground anymore even though it still snows every now and then…
The weave is very simple point twill with 4 shafts and 6 pedals to get plain weave in the beginning and the end. The pedals go 1-2-3-4 with three shuttles so there´s plenty of time to think about other things. I used cut rags for these rugs and just took whatever colour I felt weaving. Especially this one came out quite colourful.
As you can see from this picture that the other one is warm and the other one colder in tone. I have nothing in particular in mind with these rugs. I might put them on the floor for summer or end up selling them. They measure 80cm in width and 200cm in length.
I a have a ton of cut rags in store now. I bought the remaining of an old rug weaver and therefore I have an attic jam packed with rags. It really was a bargain I could not leave behind. And I think she became very happy that she didn´t have to get rid of the material she had used hundreds of hours to cut. Can you imagine that she would have burned a couple of hundred kilos of perfect rug material because nobody (other than me) wanted it? I know, this world is crazy sometimes.
Tati has kept us company for more than an year now. Still I can´t wrap my head around how great he is. He´s unbelievably easy and fun dog to hang around.
