First off, thank you SO MUCH for your excitement about my book announcement. I appreciate each and every comment!
one that my friend Cindy made. The scraps came from Cindy, as well. Originally, I had the three strips sewn together to make a mug rug or mini mat. I decided that they would be cuter as pincushions, so I ripped the strips apart and quilted them separately. Aren't you surprised that pincushions won out? (Ha!) I love these! They are scrap project #181.
I finished another knit rag rug, too! I love making these because they eat fabric scraps. (I've estimated that one rug uses at least 5 yards of fabric.) These rugs are also helpful for using sub-par or ugly fabric. Not that any of us would have any of that, right? (There is a tutorial here, if you care to make a rug of your own.) I knit this one on size 35 needles and cast on about 40 stitches. This rug was in progress for quite awhile, so I'm excited that it's finished. It is scrap project #182!
Now it's your turn! Do you have a finish to share today? If so, please link up. Thanks, as always, for joining me for finish it up Friday!
