Working on My Braided Rug Again

I have finally gotten back to where I was on the rug!

Last October, I pulled out four rows, four large rows! I had used a lighterweight wool for one of the strands. Sometimes you can get away with it, but not this time. It was twisting on both sides of the rug. At first I thought it would work itself out, but it bothered me so much I just decided to pull it out. This is a major project in itself in a rug this size. Unlacing it is not the problem. It is the un-braiding that is awful! I replaced the wool strip, rebraided and laced and here I am back, ready to start again!

I have just ended the 28th row here and I am about to make a color change.

Furrytail, my Maine Coon, is supervising.

He says he doesn't care that it is a dining room table. If it has a rug on it, he is going to sit on it!
