Funny little rugs

Two of my daughters have asked for rugs. Small, like for a bathroom or tiny kitchen. I wanted to do something with diversified plain weave, as it is a nice sturdy structure. Here is a photo of the very beginning of rug one, on the loom. The yarns are Provence and Sprout, both from Classic Elite. This weave structure calls for a dark heavy warp, plus a light, light weight warp. This is woven with a dark lightweight weft and a light, heavy weight weft. This combination creates solid forms. My weaving looks nothing like what I expected, though I really like it. 22 inches to go. Then I get to try a different pattern and color combo.
