Yarn Along- A New Rug


Life is a bit crazy at the moment, and most of it is out of my control...waiting on signatures and home inspections and whatnot before I can really *do* anything.  So I decided I needed a knitting project on big needles that would be immediately gratifying.  And hey, if we DO get this new house, our playroom will have a rug...some day... or at least it will have a play mat...or at the very least a nice coaster.

I am knitting up a Ten Stitch Twist blanket...though I am holding the yarn double in hopes that it will make a nice, comfy rug.  It is a seriously fun pattern to knit- it spirals around, and you connect it as you go, so there is no sewing up necessary.  I'll just keep repeating the pattern around until I get tired!  I am using good old Red Heart yarn in the Mexicana colorway- bright, primary colors just perfect for a playroom.  Now we just need a house with a playroom in it...we shall see, we shall see.

Linking up with Ginny and her Yarn Along today.
