There is nothing more satisfying than...

...finishing a project you started 2 years ago.
This was originally going to be a baby blanket, but .. as you read in the first line, it's a little too late. So, it has now turned into a bath mat. I found this pattern easy to follow, but just to tedious to continue for a whole blanket, even if it was in miniature size. The bath mat is knit with Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in a natural color. (hard to tell in the pictures, sorry) It measures 28" x 16.5"

Checkerboard Rug - in progress

I'm weaving a rug for a project at school. I took some in progress shots today. I'm very excited for this to be finished but it's taking forEVER! It's due Wednesday, but most likely won't be done in time. Anyways, on to the pics!
The shag will be cut down to about half it's length. Each knot, that you can see in the above photo, has 2 pieces of yarn, and is 4 wide, and 8 high. This makes for approx. 64 pieces of yarn per square. Each row has 10 (I think lol) shag squares, that's a whole lot of yarn! hehe So, needless to say, it's taking me a lot longer than I thought it would have.

I'll post pictures of the rug when it's completely finished.
