Twisting and Turning


It has been a long time since I've done any twining. However, since I'm going to demonstrate the technique at the Fiber Guild Fiber Fest in October, I thought it might be wise to make a couple of rugs to refresh my skills.

My fingers and hands fell into the rhythm with little difficulty. Normally, I sew the strips together as I twine, but a sewing machine might not be too handy to use during the demonstration; thus, I'm making this rug by connecting the strips with the slit and loop method. This method speeds up the process but also creates more bumps and knots in the rug.

Older posts on twining and the rugs I've made can be found here.
