Another reason why I've not blogged much recently -

I wove this at my lesson on weaving summer and winter as a rug weight. I've not woven it at any other weight so it was all new to me.

I believe summer and winter refers to the fact that this weave was used in bed covers, which had one side showing in summer (the lighter coloured side) and then the other side in winter (which you might term reverse video if you are modern).

I think this would make a great rug in two colours - using a multiple weft in one colour and a single weft in another colour.

Just need to finish my current enormous weaving project which I'll tell you about next.
