I'm knitting a floor rug for my dog to lay on since i have floor boards.
Half way through and i realise its pretty bloody ugly.
Well, the dear pup may find that he likes it. Since they have limited color vision it may be his idea of gorgeous. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
You may call it ugly, but from what I see, it looks like some great knitting there! Great job!

I also like it and think you are doing a great job. My dogs and cats always love to sit on anything I am knitting, so I am sure yours will love it.
Do dogs see colours, or is everything in black and white?
Hmmm. I think I like it. Bet your pooch will too.
The colour combo might not be the most soothing.....but the question is will your dog mind and even more important, will it wash well? !!
My latest, "it seemed like a good idea at the time", was to buy 5 balls of something called Cindy by Katia. It was on SALE!! I wanted to make a large shawl for a friend but thought a trial run on a open lace scarf might be a good idea. On the ball it felt pleasant, even soft. Knit up it is more like Kevlar - hard, tough, unyielding. I may continue to scarf and offerer it up as a towing rope at the church bazzar.
Looking at your pic again, the rug might actually be nice with the dog on it, kind of framing the beastie. And...I love your floors! Cheers! - Phil
yeah the red is putrid and ruining it.

I can relate to that experience. But don't worry, it is a long time to winter before you really need to have it sorted :)
its winter here now, which is why i need it. the poor thing is sleeping on the floor and i feel bad.
