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.


  1. Looks great so far! Nice and colorful. Good luck with the house situation. I know how stressful that can be!

  2. Love the yarn. I just picked up something similar at AC Moore on clearance. Good luck with the finalities of getting the house.
