First rug [Jun. 14th, 2007|06:57 pm]
Cutting a Rug
Hi. I just finished making a braided "rag" (aka brand new fabric cut into strips) rug... been meaning to for months. It was really enjoyable to make. Sort of made the hands cramp up, but nevermind that! When I first started braiding, I thought it was going to be too hard to get it to fold nicely as I went, so I started out just not caring and letting it be ratty... but then all of a sudden about 3 feet in, the strips started folding properly on their own somehow! So it wound up looking a lot better than it would have, had they remained raw and unfolded. As a result of my initial laziness, the middle looks a little shoddy. Next time I will know to fold em right from the start. Much better looking that way.

31 Skeins of Rug Yarn.... [Feb. 20th, 2004|10:11 am]
Cutting a Rug
I bought a big lot of rug yarn off of eBay thinking that "rug yarn" is a generic term for the type of yarn I ordered for $5/skein online. I got a really good deal on it, opened the box, and realized that it's not going to work in any of my projects. TOTAL Bummer. Anyways, I thought I'd advertise it in here so you could have first dibs on it.

I have the following up for trading (or selling if necessary)Collapse )
I have a tiny apartment and hate clutter so that's why I'm trying to get rid of it so quickly. :)
