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.
Textile enthusiast and creator. I learnt to crotchet and knit from my nana. Fifty years later I am still hooked. Now I spin, knit, crotchet, weave, and work on tapestry. I am currently learning design and trying to master a dobby loom!.
