Something co pletely different: A new hobby!
Ok, its not a new hobby, but it is a new craft – a no sew braided rag rug! Both my terrors have had a growth streak and there’s a lot of clothes that are too good to throw, too faded to donate and too small to actually wear…
I was pondering what to do with these old clothes – there are so many options out there – when I saw a rag rug in the Slate Museum in Wales. And the thought stayed.
We’ve also been saying for quite some time that the living room needed a rug, to help take the chill off it in winter when we’re sat on the floor building Lego or some such.
And so, like a perfect storm, it all came together to make the very rug Lockdown is basking on in the photo above.
No knitting news, just chugging along on a few projects – much knitting, little progress!
In other news…not a lot. We have actually managed a quiet, uneventful week. No plagues, no injuries, no drama….though work has been incredibly hectic!
So on that note, I shall leave you and get on with enjoying a quiet evening…of cthulhu…let the madness begin!
