Crafty Moment ~ Rug of Pastels

Once upon a time, I started a rug in October and finished it in – – October!

Old Lady Pastels ~ made from vintage worn cotton bed sheets! Which I cast on a bunch of stitches and then knit and knit and knit and knit every chance I got.

When I finally cast off, it was the length of a half a bed – all that was left to do was to nuzzle it in the nook where it now lives and pose for a self hug picture!
