Old Weavings

April 21, 2009

Away from home and I have found a rug I wove a very long time ago. This was very early in my weaving life and I used a pattern from (I think) Handwoven magazine.

I loved it then, and I still like it very much now.  The rug has held up amazingly  (you can see little bits coming through from worn joins)  and gets well used .    It is a heavy linen warp – 10/6 Irish Linen I believe and old wool coats cut into strips for weft.
