Please let me update you: I was asked to come back to the classroom for a year so finishing the 2016-2017 school year and running off on vacation for 2 weeks has been occupying my time. I published a new video series on May 29, 2017 after many requests. It took a lot of time and pushing my creative ingenuity beyond my usual edge. The series shows how to make a 5 strand braid-in runner (rectangle) rag rug in 3 parts. I made the t-shirt yarn a little different than in the past so I made another video showing how to make the t-shirt yarn for this technique. This video is still a good video to watch even if you are doing the oval braid-in (Lost Art of the Braid-in Rag Rug) because I talk more about the technique and placing your stitches. I hope some of you find it interesting and a great way to recycle some cast off t-shirts.
Here is the link for part one of 5 Strand Braid-in Runner Rag Rug (Part 1): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lf7zPqSed18 This will appear as a link in most emails, however if your email does not show it as a link you can copy and paste it in your address bar or go to my Facebook page Rag Rugs by Erin. I usually post my blog in the next 12 hours after it has been published.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for ideas or suggestions you would like clarification or information about. Perhaps you will see it in another Rag Rugs by Erin Blog.
