Well I got all 36 + 2 extra Log Cabin Squares complete for my Amish with a Twist 2 block of the month project. Just in time to pick up my next kit and get ready for my next class.
In the mean time I had gotten tired of the way my work area was looking – cluttered and piled just like I said I would not get, so I decided to take one pile off it.
The lucky pile was of my husbands old work t-shirts, white Hanes t-shirts he wears everyday to work. I have had several piles of these thru the years but, they all had hit the dust before I ever did anything with them. Well this pile was going to make its way into my final desire or I was going to give up on it.
I have always wanted a rug made of t-shirt yarn, henceforth called Tarn. I have seen so many people make these and it seamed so much better than throwing the t-shirts in the landfill.
So with all my quilting stuff out cutting the shirts into strips would be easy-
Then I started searching around Ravelry for a good rug pattern – so many to choose from.
I started with By Your Bed by Ooty Yaacobi
After discovering I had more than enough tarn and knowing that I wanted a round rug I ripped that you and tried Creative Jewish Mom’s Giant Crocheted Doily Rug Pattern
It is very pretty, but I would not have enough tarn to finish it and I found the big holes uncomfortable on my little feet.
Then I remembered a rug I needed to order the book for- Crochet Collections
I ran to my stash and found some R2 tarn I had got for a sweet price at a yarn swap and started again.
Wa La – One Pile cleaned out and one Tarn Rug made.
Feels good to clean a pile of my desk and to to have a nice new rug!!
