One wintry day this past December, I decided to unravel the giant lambswool sweater that had been sitting in my closet for too long. It never fit right, and it was such a nice big sweater that I thought it would be good to repurpose all that yarn. It was a good choice. I made a nice scarf and this rug for my friend Jess.
I didn't have a pattern, just an idea of making a rug with a flower in the middle. I used some colored cotton yarn mixed in with the lambswool, and I was pleased with the result. It's unusual, interesting to look at, and feels good under one's toes. I hope it looks nice in my friend's home. I hope many little kid toes linger on it after bathtime!
