NAVAHO WEAVING. I love the colors and patterns of Navaho rugs and blankets. For my senior project in art school, I built a 6-foot Navaho loom, dyed my own yarn (with natural dyes as close to the ones used by the Navaho weavers as possible), designed a rug and started weaving it. I ran out of time so I never finished it (I still got an A!).
