Sorels, and they are heavy and not really meant for walking long distances, but they do keep my toes warm. The cold does make it appealing to sit inside, bundled under a quilt or two, and knit and crochet.
I am making a concerted effort on completing the salmon coloured afghan. The four long strips are complete and I am working on the little squares, 26 of 36 completed. I might even get this finished before it warms up. yippee.
third pattern is out for the Red Heart Checkerboard Textures Throw. I have printed it and am ready to work on it. I bought this bright green to add to the project. Still looking for a lemon yellow which is in the variegated and maybe the teal as well. Must be a lot of crocheting and knitting going on, as lots of the worsted weight yarns are sold out in my local stores.
Hearth & Home Rug. I do have several floor matts around the house, but they all have that foam backing that deteriorates after a few years and leaves and annoying grey dust. Since they need replacing, I figure I can crochet the replacements and get some colours and textures that I like. There are quite a few patterns available on the internet and such yummy yarn colours are every where. I am also intrigued by the idea of using a chunky yarn to crochet a doily so that it turns out as an area rug. That one is further down my list.
Have any of you crocheted/knit rugs? Please leave me a comment with your thoughts on this, and a link if you have photos or pattern suggestions. Mr. Linky is awaiting you.
