Well the blog motivation is working - I finished something! This is a knee rug using Attic24's Granny Stripe Pattern (found here).
I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn, which even though it is 100% acrylic is very nice to work with and is very soft, but sturdy at the same time. There are nine colours used - mocha, walnut, khaki, copper, teal, camel, burgundy, denim and parchment. There are 5 repeats of each colour. Around the edge is four rows of sc (dc in Australia/UK). The finished rug is 95cm long by 80cm wide, just enough to go from waist to ankles.
I must admit I am happy with the result.
Now onto the next project the Autumn thingymajiggy ...
