I wove this lovely looper rug for Linda in Maryville. She came to me at the Smokey Mountain Fiber Festival in Townsend, TN in April and asked me if I could recreate a rug I had for sale there in a larger size. I said I could. She knew the width she wanted, 4 feet. But wasn't sure whether she needed 6 or 7 feet in length. I suggested we use the Golden Proportion to see what would be the most visually appealing length. And here it is. 6.5'. (4 feet x 1.619) I am so glad that I read the Threads magazine. They have had several issues dedicated to this measurement trick. It works every time I need to decide how long one side of a corner needs to be. I've used it for rugs, shawls, clothing, etc, You get a lovely piece every time.
I'm so glad that the rug turned out to match Linda's colors so well.
