I've had the hardest time trying to find the "right" kind of
round rug for my craft room.
So, when I found a pattern on Pinterest,
for a crocheted one, I had to try it!
(you can find the pattern on my Pinterest board...Crochet)
I'm so happy with the way it turned out, and the size is just right.
The night I finished it, I just threw it on the floor, and happened to
catch a shot on my iPhone of Lucy trying it out.
From the look on her face, I'd say she approves,
Then, just a few minutes later, Fetzer came in and curled up on it, so
I was thrilled.
Hopefully Shatzie will get her turn too. :-)
You see, the reason for a rug in the first place was to make
a comfy place that my kitties would enjoy hanging out with me when
I'm in my room.
The last place we lived, my craft room was the guest room so there was a
queen size bed in there and lots of soft places for my
fur babies to snuggle.
Here, I love having a designated room just for my studio, but with the
hardwood floors it seems like the kitties just don't get too
comfortable without something soft to hang out on.
I threw out the yarn labels so I can't remember the exact brand of
yarn, but it was one
of those Red Heart or Lion Brand acrylic, and less
The label said machine washable, but I've never "washed" crochet
before, have you? Would you?
Oh well, it was fun to make, and hopefully it will last for a while and
still look nice.
It was also fun to work with a BIG hook and 3 strands of yarn rather
than my usual 1.65mm hook and thread.
I think I've mentioned it before, but we have the BEST neighbors around
us. I heard a knock on the door last night and
Cindy gathered a bunch of her sunflowers to share with me.
I've been noticing she picks them and puts them in a
vase and enjoys them on her covered patio.
I am SO ready for Autumn, are you,
or are you sad to see summer end?
The temperature is cooling down, and we are getting more rain.
I think that's a sure sign
Autumn is in the air!
Still trying to get around to visit all of you!
Thank you for being here,
