Finished Up!

Yay for finishing things!!! LOL, this took a lot of knitting or at least it felt like it πŸ™‚



The playing with colour kitchen rug!

I wish I had more stamina — it would be awesome even longer than it is BUT that was that for me πŸ™‚ I used a bunch of cotton which I had stashed away, some partial balls so I’m not sure how much yarn is in it! I did use three balls of the light green and two of the darker green for a guideline as to how much goes how far. The ‘woven’ bands could be bits of any oddballs — the more variety the better, though I stuck with the variegated ones and stayed away from the solids (except of course, the white). I really love the woven look of it πŸ™‚

Now back to my regularly scheduled spinning πŸ˜‰

  1. Omgosh! I love it! I might have to borrow that idea. I have bunch of cotton odds and ends from baby burp cloths and bibs. What a great rug! Good job!! πŸ™‚

  2. You remind me so much of my sister, who like you will get on with projects and then find a use for what was left over from a previous incarnation. She weaves, sews and knits among other hobbies like creating wonderful pottery – pots and ceramic pieces.
    Keep going, your colours are just great

  3. Thanks Beryl πŸ™‚ I appreciate the encouragement!

    I love – likely like your sister! – to make anything and when I can use up the leftovers, all the better πŸ™‚ I feel so good when I can ‘make something from nothing’, much better than it feels when I’ve spent a lot of money on a project and almost feel I have to live up to the pressure of that.
