Out of hibearnation

The temp is climbing and it the garden is sprouting. It seem that it has been quite awhile since I have posted anything. I have not really been hibernating, I keep myself too busy to hibernate. Among the numerous knitting and crocheting projects, there is divination classes, private study, reloading both computers, Japanese lessons, and I have started weaving. The first project was a rug that turned out very nicely. My friend Burke gave me a bunch of rug wool, in several different colours, and I got it in my head that I should try a plaid weave.
Since the loom I have is designed as a "rug loom" the plaid it turning out to be quite loose. But only after about a foot an a half it is looking pretty good. The rug wool is from a carpet mill and is quite rough. There is no way that I could use this plaid for a garment (kilt or cloak) unless it had a nice lining. There should be enough of it by the time I have reached the of the warp. I initially warped 9 yard on to the loom. Can't wait to finish this one and rewarp the loom. I have some great ideas for rug.....
