it is nice to visit old accomplishments. this rug was my third attempt at the weaving pattern i enjoy most, rep weave. in this piece there are two rugs, you can just barely see the hem at the bottom of the photograph. this rug also taught me a lot about warp. the black in the rug (warp) broke in chunks while i was threading. when i wound the warp, measuring it it seemed strong. i learned how to add warp to over half threaded loom. what a mess. but i was persistant. i probably added about four hours of work to a normally twenty hour or more rug. the results were stunning. after this was woven i tied onto the threading with white and cream, and the cream and white became one.
