I made a new rug for the guest room, using your standard Lion Wool-Ease (4 strands at a time), a booklet I found secondhand on making rugs with a Q-hook, and a hook (I went instead with a P-hook, as my stitches can often run a bit loose).
Some important stuff I learned about making rugs:
- They’re quick.
- They’re easy.
- They only take a couple days.
- They’re soft and smooshy.
- They use LOTS of yarn.
This particular rug used 4 skeins each of blue and grey. I have very little of each left over. I was thinking matching “halfghan” but it’s not enough yarn.
It’s in our back room (our 2nd bedroom) now. So much cold seeps up through the floor, and the landlords still haven’t insulated the basement ceiling, so I decided it’s time I did something. so here it is!
