I love this rug. It is beautiful. The colors, the pattern, everything. I'm going to have to look into making one myself.

Really gorgeous!  I love the swirl and the colors, and I am so tempted to give this a try myself.  It looks awesome and like a long amount of work!

krzma13- It is 34" x 33"

Took about 150 hours to finish!  Definetely not an instant gratification project  Tongue 
Worth every second if you love cool rugs that no one else has like I do!

Omigosh! I love it! I took a locker hooking class last year at our local quilting/yarn shop downtown! It is fun isn't it? I just used up all my scrap fabric so mine didn't cost me near as much. This does remind me tho....I need to make a runner for my hallway! Great job! Nice colors! Grin

that is sooooooo gorgeous!  i'm going to have to look into this too, find that giant purple and yellow jaquard weave blanket I have and give it a go at replicating the patern on a rug....  I wonder how long it would take, if I spun the yarn I used first............ >.>

Like so many of the other posters above me, I think you've just inspired me (or doomed me?) to go buy a locker hook. I watched the youtube video and hit about 4 google links and think I'm in love...

Your rug is beautiful -- I love the swirl pattern.
