Bigger is Better!

The summer seems to be zooming by already, and I’ve been busy crocheting the days away on some fun new rugs.  I love working with my customers to create new styles and colors.  Lately the custom requests have been coming in for larger and larger rugs, so I’ve added some to my shop.  I’m now happy to offer more size options for some of my favorite designs.

Check out some of these recent extra-large-size additions:

Rainy Day Blues Rug…

Sometimes it’s just too hard to take the perfect shot.  I saw this yarn in the store the other day and fell in love.

It was a little out of my price range, but what’s wrong with a splurge every now and then?  (I bought 6 pounds of it in two different colors!)

Well, I just finished up the rug/ blanket/ super-soft-cloud-for-your-feet-pillow and have not been able to truly show how amazing it is in a picture yet.  It’s been raining here tonight, so I may have better luck tomorrow when it’s brighter.  I am also thinking about taking it on a field trip to the park to get a few better shots.  Here are a few pics that I’m working with right now for my Etsy Shop:

UPDATE:  Here’s the best few shots from the park shoot:

Scarf Complete.

I actually made two, because the first one was a little too short, but my friend has a daughter, so I think it will still get some use.  After a little tweaking of the prototype, I got to work on the second one.

Well, after a full day’s work, I finished it.

I trimmed up the ends, and this is the final product.

I liked it so much that I decided to add it on as a made-to-order item in my Etsy Shop.
