The rug first.
A few days ago I finished another crocheted rug made with fabric strips. Finished size is 20" x 30".
Love the vibrant colors of this rug. I think it says "summer" but my daughter thinks it looks like St. Patrick's Day. (We may both be right.)
A couple of the fabrics I used were from two voluminous muu-muu type dresses that had belonged to a woman who passed away a couple of years ago. The person in charge of sorting out her household belongings thought I might be able to use the fabric from the dresses and passed them on to me. I was glad to have the fabric and immediately knew I'd use them in a rug.
And the socks.
Slow as I am at knitting socks (it seems so anyway), I finished this pair last night. Colorful enough for you? I love the colors. The yarn is Berroco Sox, 75% Superwash Wool, 25% Nylon. Good stuff.

In poultry yard news, a couple of days ago we decided to let one determined Muscovy hen sit on some eggs she was diligently amassing in a nest in a secluded corner of one of the poultry buildings. However, the past few days have been so very cold (it's -2 as I write this morning) that we're wondering if the eggs won't be harmed even in the short periods she leaves the nest a couple of times a day for a quick waddle in the fresh air and food and water. Depending on what the temperature does in the next few days and how often we see her off the nest (or not), we'll have to make a decision as to whether it's too early to let her try to hatch out the eggs. It may be coming up on the middle of March, but it's not spring yet up here near the tundra.
