I took the braided rug workshop with Jill’s mom (Lois Johnstone) about 10 or 15 years ago and did nothing since except collect wool that I thought would make colorful rugs. My stash grew and this spring I dug it all our from various places and realized that I had a great deal. I had 3 old blankets, one winter coat and lots of skirts. I cut and dyed and developed a bit of a pallet the using the written instructions from the workshop I started. My first two or three were full of errors but with each one I am seeing products that I am very pleased with.
