Our lovely elderly neighbour is forever spoiling the kids with gifts or sweets at significant times throughout the year. Christmas, Easter and birthday's when she remembers.
I've been wanting to make her something for so long now, but it would just be left by the wayside every time I'd make a start. So finally, I made her a knee rug. Just in time for this very cold coastal winter that has arrived with vigour.
I have to say, this was such an enjoyable project. Maybe because I was excited to be making something for our sweet Zayda, maybe because the yarn was so lovely and soft to work with, and maybe because I loved the way this stitch looked as it came together to make one large snugly square.
It's deliciously soft to touch and just the right shade of silvery grey. A simple treble and double crochet alternating, repeated over and over until it was just the right size. Small enough to fold neatly onto a chair and light enough to pull softly over the knees.
I hope there are many cosy afternoon naps and comfy nights of watching her favourite shows to be enjoyed under this knee rug. This knee rug, made with love.
Happy winter everyone!
