it's official

It's official.

There are just far too many fun groups on Ravelry to join...

The latest one which has come to my attention is the Fabric Knitting and Crochet group. A whole group made up of people who love crafting from rags? I'm in! And if it appeals to you... you should join up too...

For february, they are working on bath mats. There are a couple of different patterns to choose from. I have chosen this one because I haven't used cables in my rag work before, and wanted to give it a try. This particular pattern calls for 19mm needles, but my largest size are 15mm... so they will have to do!

You might remember last year I found these pink rolls of ribbing... well... I'm hoping they will be perfect for the job. Here's my progress so far:

It looks fun :-)
New groups on Ravelry all the time. No way to keep up. Run and hide in corner! Lol.

You are an ongoing source of ideas and information for me - thanks! I like how your mat is working up. And I clicked on the link and my first thought was - of course - "wow - if I make one of these does that bathtub appear...."

I like the look of this rug very much. I'm sure the cable will feel great under the feet :)

Umm...totally did not need this! :) I'm joining up as I type....

I'm not too sure how that cable would feel if you step on it with bare feet. Let us know. Will the edge flatten out with blocking?

I too was concerned about how this cable would feel under the bare foot. For that matter whether I would trip over it. Are you having to adjust the pattern to account for the smaller needles? So glad to hear from you!
