MY WORK SPACE
Over the past weeks I have been weaving two very different rugs
My work space has become very messy, and it will remain that way until I finish the second rug. I decided not to cut the first rug off the loom to conserve warp. The warp I am using was first wound in the 80’s by a weaver called Helen McIntyre (now Helen Vincent). I bought the warp from Helen and hoped it would be suitable for my shaft-switching rugs. I have been pleasantly surprised both rugs are looking great.
