I’ve made slow progress on the Navajo rug. There’s only 4 inches to go, the space for the shed is really, really short and tight. I’m lifting my arms above my shoulders to weave and that has caused some shoulder joint discomfort. That’s one of the disadvantages of using the Navajo weaving technique. The advantage of Navajo weaving is that there are no warp ends to finish and no loom waste. So Pat suggested that we flip the frame upside down and finish weaving it from the bottom up. My next Navajo weaving will be on a new loom made specifically for Navajo weaving. And I will use the Ashford tapestry loom for traditional tapestry weaving.
Here’s wishing everyone a fun St. Patrick’s Day!
