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!

finished shawl

(I am several weeks behind with my blogging, but I am working on it!)

Quite a generous shawl it is.

everything sample

while waiting for the wool yarn ordered from an on-line shop, warped the loom with some old cottolin yarn,

sampling for the sake of sampling, just a study of some rosepath variations.
