I just finished making a crocheted throw rug from the remainders of skeins of rug yarn I had used in other rugs over the past couple of years.
It's a hodge-podge, helter-skelter design and is colorful, to say the least. Although Papa Pea says he really likes the multi-colors and the way it turned out, we have plenty of rugs so I'm offering this one as a giveaway here on my blog.
The rug yarn used was a combination of cotton and rayon and 100% polyester. I've used these two rug yarns together many times before, and they make a sturdy rug that wears like iron.
The rug is completely machine washable and dryable and reversible. The size is about 35" (including fringe) long by 21-1/2" wide. Depending on the surface on which you use it, you might want to pin a rubber rug backing on the floor side to avoid any chance of slippage. (I sure don't want anyone to end up on back or bum or possibly causing injury to oneself.) When I use these rugs in areas where they seem they could be the least bit slippery, I cut a piece of rug backing slightly smaller than the rug and pin it in place on four corners with medium-sized safety pins.
If you're interested in being put in the drawing for this rug, please let me know by this coming Tuesday, April 17th, by 9 p.m. when I'll turn off my computer for the night. I'll draw a name sometime Wednesday and announce the winner then. (I'm sorry to say I have to limit entries to folks in the contiguous United States for this one because of shipping costs.)
