Michelle Harris’s Rug


Michelle had finished this rug but was not happy with the way it came out, so she unlaced it and added the stripes of black to define the bands of color. She did not unbraid the color, so it had to be butted to the black. Michelle said she wouldn’t recommend doing a rug this way. If you are not happy with the rug at any point, take it out then, don’t keep going. It isn’t going to get any better.
