Posted by Sheila in Finished Items, Impressionist Rug, Weaving.

I pursued carpal tunnel syndrome by first raveling all of the headers I had woven, then using the lengths of warp remaining to braid an edge, and then taking pairs of ends, overtwisting them in one direction and then twisting them with their next door neighbor in the other direction. It took a very long time.

Here’s the edge:

And here’s the completed rug in its new environment.

Wow, it’s beautiful, and obviously fits like it was made for the spot! The colors are wonderful – quiet but glowing!

Congratulations on the finish πŸ™‚

Thanks! It was a lot of work, but this is one thing I can say turned out pretty much as I envisioned it on day one. There are things that could have gone wrong but didn’t… I managed to place the lighter warp stripes so that the overall effect when the pieces were joined is correct. I learned a lot in the process, too, and have a new respect for all the great rug weavers out there!
