I have nearly finished this, my first rug. It is on a linen 10/6 warp with a two-ply rug wool weft used two-fold. It is in a broken 2/2 twill - two colours ABABA repeat and I have managed to get about 31 picks per inch. I was happy with that because Peter Collingwood says to get up to 40 ppi at this setting but with a straight twill. The broken twill has more interlacements I believe, and I also think my warp is thicker than the one he was describing, so I'm calm.
I had no end of trouble, as usual, and at one point had to resort to re-tying all the ends (see picture) because the back stick was at an angle. The front and back sticks are galvanised metal water pipe that won't bend and are very heavy.
I'll tell you more later, but I'm going to try and finish this today. Must dash. Speak to you soon.
