Rag Rug, Part two
After getting some advice I ripped out the first rug weaving attempt and started over. The result is the one on the floor. The hanging rug is my second rug and I am now working on the third one. Between rugs number 2 and 3 I discovered what heddle bars and shed sticks are for so this one is going even faster.
I feel almost secure enough to now build a more advanced vertical floor loom. Something along the lines of this. But a lot less expensive. I have most of the materials needed on hand in my woodshop, I just need to figure out the design of the loom based on what I have to work with.
Having two blogs, this one and another for talking about non-fiber related stuff seemed superfluous. This blog will now be my main blog and will also contain stuff about woodworking and the other interests that I have.
