Many Turkish knots. I forgot to count.
The old cat carpet has out lived the cat. Many cats really. The chewed spots are my favorite. This one is on the wall for now until one of these circling beasts decides I am ready for a new friend. Maybe they know. So I guess not time for a a new cat yet. But maybe time for some new carpet weaving. I've been talking about it long enough now.
Many contemporary carpets are woven on cotton. But a wool warp, oh the difference. The feel of it is so different.
I love how the back looks so much like a basket.
A well made knotted carpet will wear quite well if you don't chew on it.
