The Lithuanian Sash Rug

Image
Both sides of this completed rug are displayed here. And both sides can be used. It is about 6 feet long with a linen warp and wool weft. The linen is only visible at the ends where I tied fringe.

We drove to the San Saba River where I took these pictures. Normally by now the land is greening up, but due to drought conditions all is still grey and beige,

I think you can see where I got my inspiration for the colours of this winter rug.

I am not sure yet where I will use this rug. Maybe it will travel to Canada. I made it on my Harrisville Rug Loom with the shaft switching device.
