The rug gets some color!




After some consideration, I decided to add color to the rug I am making for my living room. I love the idea of a super plush white shag rug, but I keep fearing that it will get dirty too quickly. I am spending a lot of time on it and the last thing I want is to be afraid to walk on it. As of right now, I might keep the white band at one side. If I get sick of it I can slowly add color into that portion. Even my dog Bonnie gave the change her seal of approval!

wow, how long does it take to make one row, if you don't mind me asking?

Ooo I love the rug! I've never even thought about making my own rug like that. I've worked a bit on small ones that use yarn. This looks great though and makes me want to make one too! Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

Ciao e vieni a trovarmi.

Well, well, here I've found your wonderful project three years later. How far along did you make it? How long did it take? Did you stick with ponte knit for the entire project? Is the rug washable? Pictures please! :)
