Double Weave

With the winter settled in I have decided to learn double weave from Jean Scorgies' Weavers Craft. All is going well and is fairly simple to understand. Most of the yarn is store purchased except for the rust, dark green and peach which is a mill spun from my sheeps wool, dyed with natural dyes.  I just got a custom order for 7 hand woven rugs, one of which is 12ft. long. Guess what I'll be doing for the next few months. This also means a trip to Amish country to a wholesale fabric warehouse to pick out fabric, and to visit every trift store on my way. Poor me!
