It is a glorious day after pulling the last loop ~ my next rug camp is just eleven days away. It was steamed yesterday afternoon and later today will start the binding process.
It is a design by Lori Brechlin and sold by Spruce Ridge Studios.
I bind my rugs differently depending on what I think it needs; this one will have a whipped edge using yarn. Eventually it will hang on the wall in my kitchen over the harvest table but will wait until after next September's Cape May rug camp so it can be in the show.
I have whipped the edge of rugs before which were placed on the floor and didn't like it. No matter how many strands of yarn you whip with the yarn eventually separated and foundation showed through. So I don't whip the edge if the rug is to be on the floor. One rug I've whipped the edge a second time over the first whipping so that makes double work.
