Cut A Rug

The Martha Stewart clearances Lofty Wool has become a small rug. And I do mean small. Here it is with my foot for comparison. (if you're a regular reader, that sock will look familiar.)(who am I kidding, I don't have any regular readers. )

And of course, as soon as I finished it and set it down, it was claimed. 

Overall it only took about two hours. I forgot how much hand strength it takes to use bulky yarn. Mm I did work from a pattern, the Mandala Rug (link coming later), up until the second row of green. Then I realized that the amount of the colors I had wasn't going to cut it for staying on pattern. But it still worked out well.
