Still Knitting

Some weeks back I started on this rug. I know, I know, I'm slow at getting things done - comes from having too many irons in the fire, flitting from one project to another like a bee in a bottle (just as well there's no law against overuse of metafores) Anyway, this is as far as I've come do date. I buy all my wool at the local Op Shop, so the colour choice is a matter of pot luck and it's really difficult to get the squares to look OK with each other and not clash. Purpose bought wool in lovely toning shades would make the rug rather expensive and will have to wait until I'm rich and famous.
Anyone who knows how to use a colour wheel (I don't) is probably cringing right now but the rug's bright and colourful and, being wool, will have a low fire danger even if the clanging colours are likely to keep the user awake at night.
Hope you're enjoying this lovely Melbourne Autumn for Easter. And wherever else you are in the world, Easter blessings to you.
Bye for now until next time.


  1. Hi Elsie, are you planning ahead for winter? "pot luck" squares, I think, is what makes blankets/fabric quilts more appealing and inviting to touch and snuggle beneath*!*

  2. Hello Annie, Just yeilding to an addiction and trying to fool myself that I'll cull some of my wool stash.
