My mom is visiting and between seeing what I have been working on, and viewing the pics here on this blog, we had to run out and buy HER the book! :)
So both of us want to make the Absorba bath mat and I see where many of you have used 4 strands of Peaches and Cream. What size needle?
just needing to attach the ribbons to the kimono before I post pics...
That being said- it looks really good and is a lot of fun. I highly recommend making it, although I suggest taking breaks! Good luck!
The book says double layered?
I love the mat so much - and my husband thought it a shame to make it a bath mat cause it was pretty - I'll prolly make some more for bedside rugs and such.
I loved mine so much I ordered a bunch of cones from Elmore Pisgah to make rugs for my kitchen. I've started on the first rug, but am just doing straight garter stitch rather than a log cabin. Will probably do the next one in log cabin though, it's a much more interesting look.
But 4 strands and size 13 needles sounds do-able. Mariel, how did you manage on size 9's? yikes!!!!
