Braided rugs made from old rags represent frugality and parsimony, but their flamboyant colors speak of a love for beauty. This rug, made of alternating garter and stockinette stitch strips shaped with short rows, gives you the chance to bring this classic beauty into your own home.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This beautiful shawl is made from one large skein of wool and one large skein of mohair. The shawl is soft and cuddly and would be a wonderful gift for any woman who has suffered from a recent crisis or loss. The lace pattern is easy to memorize and works up quickly on size 11 (8mm) needles.
