Ta dah...My twice crochet rug!
I never thought I would finish this crochet blanket/rug.I only started it a few weeks ago when a lovely 82 year old came to cackle club and showed us how to do raised flowers. Not being a crocheter?I gave it a shot and the task was to make nine squares and make it into a cushion.I did not think I would use a cushion so decided to join mine together for the centre and continue to make a rug.
Last week I had 3 rows to go when a friend was admiring my work as she new I am just a learner,she then noticed I had turned my work around after about 12 rows and it was inside out!!
It was so obvious as it was almost like looking at a jumper half the back knitted right and then doing a purl row where a plain should be does that make sense?My position was to either hope no one else noticed and finish or pull it undone.
I decided to undo it, as I would always know it was wrong.Today I completed my rug and I am so happy it is over,hence caling it the twice crochet rug.
I decided to get smart and crochet some little flat flowers for the border,still not sure if I like them but they are there to stay.
I would like to say to all those people who relish their crochet that I am now hooked so to speak and will do more,it was a lovely relaxing craft to learn,I still have a long way to go but so happy that I got to make this,I am in awe of some of the things all you girls make and hopefully some day I will be able to make lovely things without having to unpull it.
What a beautiful time of year our garden is a picture at the moment, birds chirping,the chooks are happy and it is almost 7pm and bright as bright,the sun is still beaming through our front door. I am not always a fan of daylight savings but I do like it very much on the weekends.So roll on summer I have finished with the wool now for a season or 2 and out comes the embroidery threads.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
