    I had one of these. Took a class several years ago and started the rug. Got about 18" done and was tired of it. It was also very difficult on my back. So I sold it to a friend
    along with a hug pile of strips. She's been working on it and says when she gets done if I want the rug and/or the frame back she'd be happy to pass it back to me for free. Hope you have fun with it.

    I could get those potholders off the loom. But I probably couldn't remember how now. I want to see the finished product -- OFF the loom!!

    My great grandmother taught me to weave those rugs.. her loom was much the same but as I remember her "pegs" were "headless" nails. You remove the rug from the frame by "crocheting" it off.. each loop is drawn through the one before it.. then you stitch the last one to keep it from raveling out. Can't believe I remember that.. I was 9 and she was in her 90's when she taught me. She spent one day teaching me then said "now go home and dream about it and you'll remember how." Guess she was right.

    I remember the pot holders. My friends and I all had looms when we were kids. We must have made a million of them. I am looking forward to seeing your finished rug. Good luck.

    I liked these too, but didn't thnk I would every get it done with this method. I crocheted a couple of denim rugs instead. Spent about 2 days making one. Much faster.

    very interesting. My grandmother made a big rag rug my hand many many years ago and it is still around.
