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!
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.
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.
I LOVE the edging though.
Here's close ups of all the runes. They are Eldar Futhark runes and they are arranged in order.
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).
