Here is the knee rug now completed which Peter will take south with him to Tasmania next week.

Its been fun to do and fairly quick which was just as well. It is done in a 12 ply acrylic with about 10% wool in it.


Thanks for looking.

OK I HAVE PUT IT BACK ONLINE FOR YOU. PB is being most odd at present.

That is very pretty & such a lovely item, so neatly worked. Well done :applesauce: :applesauce: :whoop: :D

I could not see it at first but I clicked on the photo & went along left side of Photobucket - hope it was the right knee rugI was looking at. It is very pretty & excellently worked. :whoop:

and knitting. Something I started 4 years ago and finally finished it and put it together late last week. Sadly the lovely colour of this summer knitting cotton doesn't show up. It is a very soft apple green with creamy/white through it and will keep my neck & shoulders warmer in the summer when it is too hot to wear a long-sleeved cardigan .

Here is the replacement knee rug for my 2nd son finally finished now that spring is here - of course. The 2 bright squares are little mats for his 2 lovely cats. If it hadn't been for them who knows what would have happened the night of the house fire. One of them woke him scratch --------- out of his hand and they all got out the bedroom window ok. He is hoping that the rebuilding will start soon, it was insured but of course one can't replace the treasures lost.

you can't replace exactly what was lost, but you can start building (and crocheting) new memories and heirlooms. How wonderful that their cats guarded them so well - they definitely deserve their blankets!

I completely agree! I know that your son (and his heroic felines) will love their new and beautiful rugs!
