The Knitted Rug


Kimberly R has finished the rug she made for me, and was nice enough to provide pictures in advance of its arrival.  It looks beautiful.  I'm planning on using it as the perfect splash of color in our playroom, although it has occurred to me that it's so beautiful that I may be forced to redo our bedroom around it.

I sent Kimberly a big box full of Elliebelly yarn, dyed on a bulky superwash Merino base.  In case you missed that post and want to see the yarn, it's located here.  The idea was to put all those different colorways to use — I'm planning on using the leftovers to do scrappy sweaters for Ollie (and Ellie if the leftovers holdout).

This rug has to be one of the most innovative patterns I've ever seen.  Thanks Kim!
