It has used nearly 5000 yards of Paintbox Simply DK so is a good stash buster because I used two colours together. I randomly picked the colours because I wanted it to be a bright and colourful rug for my living room. Plus I want to stop having cold feet from the laminate flooring.
I have put a link above to the rug pattern above if anyone would be interested in purchasing it.
Today is a very sunny but cold day and the forecast for the evening is even colder, it is going to get to about 1 degrees so warm pyjamas tonight. I have been planning what to cook for a meal tonight too, Frank is popping over and after much deliberation I am going to cook a fish meal with rice and vegetables. I would not say I am enthusiastic about cooking, I do not cook many meals but when I know I am getting a visitor I will make an effort.
It is 12.30pm and for the rest of the day I intend to watch a few podcasts and cast on a new project called Reyna by Noora Laivola which is a free pattern on Ravelry.com. I am going to use some stash yarn that I have called Louisa Harding Amitola. It is a lace kind of shawl pattern and will be my first lace project.
Have a good weekend.
