Last weekend I was in the Twin Cities. Ken had nudged me to take a class on Scandinavian Rug Weaving. I have been weaving traditional American rag rugs for a short time every winter, and really enjoy transforming rags into useful rugs. I was intrigued by this class as the rugs looked more durable than what I had been making all these years.
I have two weekends to learn this technique. So far I have gotten the loom at the class warped up and will be weaving next weekend. I have learned so many things that will make my warping process (the slowest and somewhat tedious part of weaving) go more quickly and more smoothly. This has been so exciting. I was ready to learn these new techniques and with deep gratitude I say, "Thank you, Ken!"
I will try to remember my camera next weekend!
