Yesterday Aaron and I drove to Woolrich, PA to meet my family at the Woolrich Outlet store. I got a wool jacket and a stuffed sheep. I was also fascinated with the wool braided rug display they had. My grandmother makes hooked wool rugs... but those look time consuming. I think braided rugs are more up my alley.

So I got the special joining needle and a set of folding cones that roll your wool into perfect strips for braiding. I think I am going to start off with a cotton or jersey rug first... don't want to ruin a bunch of wool right off the bat. My grandmother recommened searching second hand stores for wool coats to cut into strips.

I found a fractal pattern called braided rug that has wonderful colors for a rug. Also check out these funky shaped rugs. (major tripping hazards)
