rather large lap rug

 
I started this small lap rug as a winter project to pick up in the evenings and just do a few rows as I wound down from the day. Somehow as I slowly pottered it grew, and grew and grew. Now I have a very large warm blanket for my bed. I love the way crotchet seems to find its own rhythm and the various colours in this project sit happily with each other, even though I didn't pay much attention to which colour I used when. Somehow I think the randomness of the colourways adds to the snuggly homely feel of the overall piece. I think my nana would be well pleased with this one.

  1. It's gorgeous! Congratulations!! It looks soft and warm, just the thing to keep you warm on these cool Spring nights, maybe as a light blanket in summer.

  2. It is 100% Australian wool. Some handspun by moi, and other commercial bits from my stash. We (the royal we!) have had some very hot weather lately and it has become a comfortable replacement the hot hot hot doona.
