I haven’t had much time to craft these days, but when I do, I’ve been working on these:
I bought the materials for this rug (pre-cut wool strips and stiff heavy thread) at a funky garage sale in Contocook, NH about ten years ago. After starting the rug I moved and no longer had a need for it, but I had a hard time letting go. I nearly sold it at a garage sale of my own, but here I am, needing rugs again, so I figure I’ll try to finish it this time. It reminds me of my granny’s braided rug and also of Jacob’s in Jacob Had a Little Overcoat.
The yarn here is a cashmere-silk blend I bought for a song at Tuesday Morning. I guess it was there because of the color, but I love orange, and it’s so yummy and soft. I just hope I have enough yarn to make it long enough. That’s what I get for knitting without a plan.
I’m hoping that posting about unfinished projects may inspire me to finish them 🙂
