Finishing Projects

I got back to school and finished a couple projects I had going before I left for break.

I used the Cool Corder to make the long cords for this rug and then sewed all the long strands together and wound it in a circle. I started to sew it across the diameter several times until it got too tedious so I brought back some iron-on adhesive from home to finish it this week. There's a neat paisley print fabric on the bottom of the rug.

yarn: several colors of worsted weight wool yarn

I finished another hat I've been chipping away at for awhile. It was too big so I felted it by hand.

yarn: Tahki Donegal Tweed homespun (oatmeal), Lamb's Pride worsted (black), a few rows of Nashua creative focus (color is covered because of the rolled brim)

Okay, I found the right post. The rug is fantastic. I think I would have shot myself in the head if I had to do that much icord and then sew it together. Your colorworking mojo is supa dope as well. Very fine hat, my friend.
