New Tricks

It's always fun to try out new techniques.  A little rug sample got a treatment of Damascus edge plus these cool little triangular knotted bits that taper the warp down in a protected way to be braided.  I tried these both out with the help of our old friend Peter Collingwood.  Open book is The Techniques of Rug Weaving, and on the tablet is his Rug Weaving Techniques: Beyond the Basics.
