December 2013; zapotec and double-weave

During December, we spent many a peaceful evening weaving. John was finishing his zapotec-inspired blue rug, which he started last summer, and I began to weave the double-weave blanket. It is challenging to weave a layer you can’t see!
Meanwhile, John had to look ahead to the next project, carding the wool and creating the design, so I could spin it and eventually he could dye it. This rug will be longer: it needs 90 ounces of yarn!

Costco find: I can soak yarn in this and then spin the water out!
