More rug projects

This is the second small rug piece I wove on my new-to-me Harrisville rug loom. It measures 15 by 28 inches and uses a variety of materials. The warp was linen and the light grey weft is cotton. The four other colours are churro wool.
I believe I will use this as a table topper, like an oversize hotpad or even on a coffeetable.

 And here is the third piece completed. I had wanted to use this as a rug, but because I was trying to cram a lot of weaving in a short warp, I could not use normal binding off techniques. So I do not think the edges would have held up to heavy traffic. It graces my office wall right now. It is 26.25 X 33 inches.

Both of these rugs utilize shaft switching techniques and equipment.
