We all see different things as we drive and ride down the road. A few weeks ago I thought I saw a rag rug on the shoulder of the highway. Each time I went by the spot I looked and the shape was now wet from rain and less bright, but still there. After a couple of weeks curiosity got the best of me so I pulled over to look. Sure enough it was a rug! It was great fun to see what choices that weaver made. It is a well made and visually pleasing rug.
I intended to learn to crochet rugs for quite some time. I love my looms, but during the growing season I never am set up to weave. I thought if I learned to crochet rugs, I could work on reducing my rag inventory when I was on the go. Here is my first effort. I just learned from a library book that I have been doing it all wrong. A friend showed me, but when I went to do it, my memory was not quite right. So instead of double crochet, this rug is single crochet. Once I finish it I will learn and move on. The next should be better!
