I took 12 of my jumbo potholders and stitched them together into this rug, which I’m currently using as a bathmat. Strangely, I haven’t had enough of potholders. I’m right on the edge of plunging in and buying 10 pounds of loopers!
I needed a little inspiration for weaving, and I found these two great videos. The first is a short segment with weaver James Koehler. I was interested in his work because so much of it is monochromatic, which is what the first two months of this year’s WAL on Ravelry is focused on. The second is a great video about Navajo weavers:
The first part of the green loop was fun. Drawing a spiral with a marker on the warp threads is one thing… actually weaving it is another. I was surprised that it moved along really quickly. There are areas here and there with warp threads peaking out. I’m having some trouble beating the weft enough to cover them because the warp threads are a bit loose.
