Notes: 

After several projects practicing what I learned in a rug weaving class with Joanne Hall I felt confident enough to spend money on the Borg Mattgarn wool to weave a 48 inch rug/runner. The rug (table runner) is intended to go on the top of a new mission/craftsmen style cabinet that will be installed in our entryway as part of a kitchen remodel. I purchased a copy of the Peter Collingwood book and have been sampling various 2/2 twill patterns. I drafted this project inspired by a book on craftsman homes, colors and pattern .

Nice!

Enjoyed your background to proceeding here. Looking forward to pictures of your finished piece. This is a weave structure I've yet to try. Your colors are beautiful!
