variation on a theme of tailgate rug

hi everyone!
i just joined and am glad to be in the company of so many other MD lovers.
first up, i wanted to post a picture of my finished kitchen rug:

i wasn't sure about the double worsted cotton, so i used regular ol' sugar-n-cream and triple stranded it the whole way through.. and since i didn't have any rag strips, i used contrast yarn (triple again) in place of the rags.
i love the results, but i'm so glad to be finished. triple stranded cotton? ouch.

i've got a log cabin blanket in the works and washcloths a-plenty. i'll have to dig those up and snap some pictures to share.
next up from MDK? maybe the window covering.
or the felted nesting boxes.
or maybe big dotty.

Comments:
Wow it looks great! We haven't seen whole lot of these. And triple stranded - your arms must be tired.
 
Looks great, how much yarn did the rug take???
 
i used 1 small ball each of sugar-n-cream for the red, blue, and yellow contrast stripes.
the main color green yarn was labeled as 'Bernat Handicraft Cotton' or somkething like that. but bernat makes sugar-n-cream, so the colors and the yarns are identical. the Bernat skeins were HUGE - like 1 pound each - and i bought three of them at AC Moore Craft Store.
i ended up with just a little yarn left over from each skein, and (for just a second) considered making matchy-matchy potholders, but honestly i was ready to be done with the triple-stranded cotton for a while.

thanks for the compliments!
