I don't know why, but I am clearly nuts. So beginning today I am posting photos each month, (preferably on the 1st of each month) progress of this gigantic shag rug. See how I started it here (scroll down past posting of my $10 dress).
This is a photo of it today:
Yes, I used the candelabra for scale. Haha.
This rug is really soft and is fun to run your fingers through.
It doesn't look like much was accomplished, but though the number of packages we have gone through of pre-cut latch hook rug yarn already I have calculated that we've used over 2500 strands for this ie.) 8 packages. I also just ordered 10 more packages of lime green since that's what I ran out of first and 6 more packages of straw yellow.
There is still quite a bit to go, but you see the blue row squares? Each of those are 10 rows. We counted that we have 24 more square rows to go. If we do a square all the way across in a week (10 rows) we can get this thing done by mid-September. Quite a feat, but definitely possible!
Until next month on the rug... wish me luck!
