Welcome and rug update

Welcome to Linzi Sayles via here. I have finished the top section (1/6th) of the rug so thought I would update you with a picture, before it gets turned to begin at the opposite end:
A slight deviation in the levelness of it but that can be adjusted as I work. Once turned, I worked on the next 1/6th piece (the bottom part of the loom before turning). Apparently you are supposed to work from either end and finish in the middle.

I had to get the computer out again just to begin and end the first row, which stretches my patience to breaking point! However, eventually I got it and after that, it gets easier and the end turns become more natural to complete. Herewith some of this bottom portion. However I could have kicked myself as it wasn't until I took the photograph that I realised it is lining up in a pattern which I didn't want:
I have now swapped around two of the colours which should eliminate the strong orange brown ziz zag's a little:(

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  4. You have a lot more patience than me. This project must take a lot of time and concentration. It is really a pretty pattern. Thanks for sharing and have a blessed day.

    1. As this is my first attempt, i am just working the colours as they cone. Creating a true pattern seems harder!
