Barbara Checks In
I've been MIA for awhile, but going back to work after having a semester off for sabbatical has meant a bit of an adjustment in my schedule. Then, of course, working and being around a lot of people during the height of the cold and flu season meant that I got what was going around, which knocked me off my game for a few weeks. I'm happy to be well again.
In the meantime, I made another rag rug on my rigid heddle loom. I posted a tutorial in 2012, which still brings me lots of blog traffic. I used a slightly longer 65" warp with this project, and I'll probably go even longer next time.
For this rug I used red cotton for the warp, and various red prints for the weft.
It's a yummy rug for the kitchen.
Off the needles, I finished a pair of socks. I love knitting striped socks as I can measure my progress with the color changes. It's hard to stop sometimes because I want to see what the next color will look like.
