I'ma gonna like this one!





Here's the newest warp I've got on the loom... Just started weaving this morning ~ two rugs down, and about 30 more to go!

Pictured is a rug made up of mens dress/khaki pants.  Lots of different colors here.  I went with the tans, browns and greens and left out the ones that were more blue toned.

In the next week, I will be hosting a couple of young people who are going to try out my loom.  They are prepping their rags and will weave a project for 4-H.  The young man wants a rug and his older sister has come up with an idea to make her rug into an accessory for her horse trailer.  Can't wait to work with these two!

Hope they have fun, and maybe it will encourage a couple more kids to try it for next year!  I'll make sure to post a picture or two, if it's ok with their mom :)

  2. How wonderful to give young people an opportunity to weave. It's so frustrating that weaving has become a rich people's hobby. That has just go to change. Good for you. I'll be on your recycle mode soon after I finish my rug. I love your ethic.
