Gröna trasor / green rags

Our very last school assignment before it all ends this week (it’s kind of hard to believe, but it’s true) – a rug in any material, size and form.
Since rugs are not so popular in our house (mostly because of an old cat with poor digestion) I am weaving a “flying carpet” for the garden instead – a rag-hummock.
Tabby with some rosepath stripes
(I made black and white warp stripes only because I didn’t have enough of the green).
Thank to this project we (my family and me) have assembled the second-hand loom I bought half a year ago – an Öxabäck, in Sweden it is considered to be ” loom of the looms” , this one is huge – 150 cm weaving width and it takes all the free space in our guest room. Come and be our guest :)
Everything in this loom is so smart and smooth! Ulla Zyrus-Zetterström, who constructed this loom- is genius.
I have another meter to go and hope for a nice summer!
