Something's Not Quite Right
The taquete rugs I am weaving right now, don't look right. This is what they are supposed to look like (blue = light yellow):
This is inspired by a project in Issue 160 of Handwoven magazine. This is what my rug looks like so far:
This is supposed to be a weft-faced weave, so you shouldn't see anything but white and yellow. Also, one line of weft is getting packed up under or over the previous one. This will make for a nice, thick rug but not the blocks of color I was going for.
This was part of the instructions for the project. I found it very confusing so I just ignored it. This may be why it doesn't look right.
