Finished.....

There is a wonderful sense of achievement when you finish crocheting a rug
and I'm so proud that I have finished another rug.
This is my Second Crochet rug and it's such a thrill to have it all finished and ready for my family to snuggle in it, there are still a few cool days left before the heat of summer hits so I'm sure it will be used a little this year.
Beautiful pure new wool
a hook
and a little time
= lots of warm cuddles :)
Have a happy day!

It's exactly how I pictured the finish blanket would be! So cuddly and lovingly made. Hope you all get the chance to enjoy its warmth.

This is just gorgeous, and brings a tear to my eye. My grandmother used to make rugs like these and she taught me how to make those squares when I was a child. She made a small lap rug for each of her grandkids. I wish she was still here now to make me a rug this big. :)

Just beautiful! Lovely work and really great colours.
I often say I want to learn to crochet, but struggle to find the time. My nana, like Sarah's, also crocheted rugs for all her grandchildren, but sadly she lives the other side of the world. However lucky for me my good old mum packed my nan's beautiful (large) crochet blanket in her suitcase and brought it over for me last time she visited!
