Oh me…not just a small rug…oh no I am working on an area rug. Why you might ask? Well I can’t find one I like…well that I can afford! Yarn can be expensive, and with two little ones I didn’t want anything too fancy on my floor so I caved. And I bought acrylic not so fancy yarn. But my thinking is that it will probably get beat up anyways and I would weep if I spent precious money on beautiful expensive “alpaca wool” yarn only for it to be peed on, spit up on, juice spilled on, picked at and pulled on.

By the time I have this finished the girls may be in high school….ha! The pattern I am using is at the purlbee but again…I am not using the fancy yarn, although I would LOVE to. And someday I will….someday….
