Call the Doctor!
Well, I finished it in 3 nights of TV knitting, but man are my fingers sore and my wrists tired. I have been forced to read for a couple days to recover.
Here she is, in all her MSU Spartan colors glory: (2 strands ecru, 1 forest)
A couple of comments:
1. I knit this rug on 9" sz. 13 clovers. I don't have any longer ones, maybe that's why I am so sore...
2. Does it seem strange that I have almost have a cone x3 left over? I always seem to always have way more yarn leftover than the pattern calls for. I can get 3 ballbands from 2 balls of SnC as well. hmmm... Guess I'll have to make another one of these puppies to use it up, but that is a project which will wait for awhile. *oh the pain* *giggle*
3. It is extra sqooshy and lovely. DH and his size 14 feet are in love.
After my self-mandated recovery time with Kristin Lavransdatter, I plan to miter a few for Jennifer...
Happy MD knitting all!
Your's looks great!
*note to self* Stashbuster does not mean buy new yarn, have for five minutes, then consider it stash and start knitting with it....
I'll probably make matching pot holders and ballbands for my BIL's x-mas gift, and call it his kitchen set. That way, he'll actually get some use out of my knitted gift!
i was wondering where you got your absorba? online? i'm looking to make a bath mat like this too.
I bought the yarn at Wal-Mart. It is what the pattern in Mason Dixon calls for- I used two strands of Peaches and Cream ecru, and 1 strand of forest.
I love how your bathmat turned out. I can see why this thing was so heavy.. it even looks like it would absorb a whole bathtub if you let it. You did a really great job!
*giggle* My absorba was only an inch less than the width in the book, so I'd say it doesn't matter! Just keep knitting until you reach the size you want. You definately won't run out of yarn!
