On the road again!

The rug is now on its way to the beautiful coastal city of Wollongong.

I had intended to knit a lace pattern in acrylic to lighten the weight, but the rug cried for a stranded colour pattern [in wool]!

Here's what I wrote in the book:
As you wrap this blanket around you
or snuggle under its comforting warmth
draw strength and courage from the love knitted into every stitch.
Here's the rug so far [spread out over two circular needles]

And here's a close up of the last three knitters' work:

Thanks, Joy, for allowing me to be part of this.

Lynne, the hearts are the perfect addition. The rug is looking fantastic!

Ooooooh so CUTE!!!! Well done on that big stretch of tiny hearts - it looks so amazing!! I am really looking forward to getting it back at the end to donate now, it will be wonderful checking out everyone's work IRL.

It arrived today - well done everyone so far - it's lovely.

I am guessing that I will have to do lace Lynne....fanks! I hate lace. (Not really - just not very good at it). Off to scour the Stitch Dictionary to find something that will look just right.

It looks beautiful doesn't it. What a wonderful treasure it will be.
