A while back I posted pictures of a rug in progress on my peg loom. After a year I have finally finished it. Definitely a learning experience. Here is my loom:
Purchased from Daisy Hill Handiworks. Lynette is a doll to work with.
I bought 3 cones of Sugar and Cream cotton yarn. One solid color for the warp, hombre for the weft.
I think I took so long, they discontinued the color. I finally bucked up and finished.
All ends are woven in as not to tempt the cat.
Tips I can give:
I had my loom made for me, with the smallest spacing, in the longest size. If I want to use a thicker fiber I can just warp every other peg.
Using a single strand of yarn takes a long time to weave. Double up or use a thicker material.
Cotton weft on a cotton warp is HEAVY. If I had thought about it, I would have spaced it out by pushing the weft further down earlier on or used a material more able to handle the weight.
It was so heavy that at the end the warp strings broke. Not fun to deal with. The rug is very compact because I was afraid of further breakage by pushing the weft down more.
It is a pretty solid rug and I look forward to other projects on peg looms.
