Hiya, all!  Hope ya had a terrific weekend...I had fun at a Halloween party w/friends and got some crocheting done...two sheets down on my rug and ripped up another one today.  The joins are made, so I will continue crocheting on it when I can.  I also have a pic, just haven't uploaded it yet!!

I think I'm going to jump into this CAL Smiley  I am working on making my mother a few rag rugs for Christmas.  I know she loves the look and we have bare floors, so it'll be great to have in the middle of winter!

After seeing the awesome tutorial by pixieval on t-shirt yarn, I am itching to make another crochet rag rug!  I have all my t-shirts and now just need to cut them out!  I am sure it will go way faster than my old way of going round and round and round and round...ugh! Cheesy

I love the colors! I have no patience for making circle rugs, just because of the counting, but I love the way they look

Pixi...I'm sure there are more than two errrrrrrors in there!!! Cheesy  I miss'd the count so many times!  I don't see it getting much bigger after this next color.  Also, it is much like my crocheted half-circle (w/yarn) rug...count, count, mess up, rippit, and count!!  Roll Eyes

Kittymom13, those colors are so pretty!  I love the blue, especially Smiley

Here's my own first attempt at a rug.  I actually really like crocheting in the round, LOL, even though I botched the decreases a bit because the gaps are too big.



When I go home for Thanksgiving break I'm going to make a trip to the Goodwill or a nearby thrift store so I can pick up more sheets/old fabric to finish this and get started on another one, rectangular this time.

Kittymom13 and writer_crafter, I love your rugs!
 I really, really need to get some of my older sheets cut up. There is a great thrift store in my town, but I need to de-clutter what I have first. I can't wait till I have more time again.

I haven't been able to get it through inter-library loan yet, but I have heard that this is one of the best books on crocheting rugs that lay flat. I will probably end up buying it one day, once I'm out of financial crisis mode. Diana Blake Gray is an expert on rugs. I really like the other books of hers.
