CMMDI – Mega May

on May 11, 2013

made me

While some people are busy doing huge lace projects, I’m going for the quick and easy.

Pattern: Giant Rug by Go-Girl Knitting (kind of)

Yarn: 1/2″ Cotton Piping

Needles: US120


  • Cast on: 5/10/13  7:19 p.m
  • Cast off: 5/10/13  9:34 p.m.


  • Cast on:  5/11/13  8:34 am
  • Cast off: 5/11/13  10:01 am

Yep. Two FO’s in under 24 hours. Well, besides the fact that I think I want to dye them.  Texas loves the squishiness of the rugs. He even mentioned the possibility of me making a seat cushion for him. I however, am done with the cotton piping for a while. That stuff gets h.e.a.v.y!

Besides, I want to make a big rug for the end of the bed now. That may involve purchasing a pair of the original Giants.

I know. I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole.

Just for Carrie K., goats for size comparison.

Happy weekend y’all!

    I think the rugs should be placed on the llama for size comparison. (Go get one.)

    I’m not sure how “easy” those are to use, but I guess at least they were click.

    And yes, what Kitten said.
