I Got's Pictures

I unearthed my husband's camera today, so I can share the pictures of the FINISHED mediation rug! I finished the edging yesterday morning and blocked it.

It came out perfect!

Meditation Rug


I am trying to find some quick test knitters for my pattern. Since, although I am happy with how it turned out I do really want to make the edge a bit less tight, BUT I do not want to rip it out to alter it. It took ME 2 months to knit this, but I am knit slower than a snail.

The Details-

Pattern: A Birdy's Knit Original, pattern forthcoming. The final pattern will be priced at $2.50 and will include instructions for a Christian themed rug.
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Undyed, 100% wool 4 skeins (100 grams a piece) and KP Wool of the Andes in Black Cherry, 100% 2 balls (50 grams a piece)
Needles: KP Interchangeables in US size 8 and DPNs US size 6
Misc: The rug measures 45 inches in diameter.

The cabled edging took ages--about 3 weeks. It's about 8 feet worth of edging.

Meditation Rug


I LOVE the edging though.

Here's close ups of all the runes. They are Eldar Futhark runes and they are arranged in order.

Meditation Rug - First Aettir


Meditation Rug - 2nd Aettir


Meditation Rug - 3rd Aettir


It was done just in time too...it's really getting too hot to have what is essentially a wool blanket covering my lap. Now it's exclusively lacey things and socks (if I ever let them out of time out).

Oh wow, oh wow, oh wowzers!! Birdy this is beautiful! I missed seeing it on the LSSK list. I love it and love your use of Runes. You have outdone yourself.
 
Totally and completely love the rug. Love the runes. Oh man, that was just a GREAT idea. I will be sure to get a copy of the instructions and make it some day!!!!
