Shirret Rug Progress

Well...I'm on my last side, and then a couple rounds the entire rug and I'll be done.  And I'm love'n it!!  I think the red squares in each corner of the rug is like the icing on the cake.  It just makes it.  The next time you see my rug, it will be complete!  I'm hoping this weekend!

A trip to Goodwill last week landed me more red wool, just enough to finish this up.  Thrift stores are the ideal places to look for wool.  $3.75 bought me a long red wool skirt!  I stick to the 100% wool, the color and feel work best for these rugs.

I'm out for now, going to put a few more rows in before I hit the hey.

Here's a picture of me and Phoebe, and her new friend, Rusty, at the Weenie Roast on Saturday.  Too much fun!

Your rug is coming out so nicely! I love the red corners too and all the other colors. I love the design you have done with the rows going in different directions. I'm sure this will feel so good under bare feet!

Wow..it is really coming along. I too love the red. It really sets it off. Never thought about going to a thrift store for fabric for rugs..great idea.
