Some days ago I started working on a new crocheted doily rug. The work started with cutting an old duvet cover into yarn, then crocheting a bit, then cutting some more yarn. Crocheting is easy and fast, it’s the other stuff that’s taking a lot of time. Or maybe my scissors are just too small.
In order to crochet some more rounds I had to cut the second duvet cover, too. It’s painstakingly slow, but I guess that’s what it’s all about. So, round two at the yarn factory for me. Took a lot of time, but was definitely worth it.
After some late night stitching, my German Shepherd put her foot down, and the night shift at the rug factory was finished.
Also, the minute I spread the rug on the floor to see how the pattern looked like, the dog chose to lie down there. So I guess the rug is soft and nice.
And here, finally, the doily rug. It’s about 113 cm in diameter. The rug turned out fine, even though not like the pattern I was thinking of. Sorry for the bad lighting on the photo: our house is full of moving boxes and free floor space is scarce.
I really like the idea of recycling old materials and creating something completely different from them. As crochet often is, this project too, was slow fashion in the making.
♠ In the meantime: I read a piece of news that kind of hit a nerve. Guilty!
