I've been knitting a ton of hats for gifts, but I've been thinking. I live down here in the deep south, and hats are only going to be useful for a short time as well as scarfs and other winter wear. Afghans and throws are fun, but one needs multiple projects. I went to Barnes and Noble with all this in mind and rambled through the knitting section (which as usual drew some odd looks). I came across "The Knitted Rug." "Rugs," I thought to myself, "this could be fun." It turned out to be a good book and I've started my first rug. It's basically a very long ICord sewn together using a whip stitch.
In the picture you see the book and the start of my rug project. It is still small and only one color, but it will grow.
