rag rug - 5

very bad late night, low light shot before I added my latest colour

My love affair with my rag rug continues.  I'm battling a little with it puckering up but I plan to 'block' it like you do knitting at the end and see if that helps.  

now with the yellow rows added

I found an old sheet in a very pale yellow the other day so it too has fallen victim to the scissors.  All in the name of recycling of course!


To give you a slight idea of scale, here is the rug next to my stove which is 900mm (90 cms or around 1 yard wide).  I'm planning at least 2 more rotations of colour and then I'll see how I feel about the size.  I think we're getting very close.


I've also fallen victim to the rag rug curse and am already planning on making more, maybe small ones as table decorations, placemats, even coasters!  The little Guy has of course put his order in and Mum keeps telling me (hinting I think!) that my Granny used to make them for bath mats.  Aunty has also been sucked in and is planning one for her 'new' sewing room.  LOL!

Looking grand that is for sure. I have sorted some fabric so I can make one too...
