Fiz este tapete em crochet para o quarto dos meus filhos com restos de lã que sobraram do meu projeto de tapeçaria do 9º ano - é verdade, a minha mãe tinha estas lãs guardadas há mais de 25 anos! É uma lã para tapeçaria bastante grossa, difícil de trabalhar, mas fiquei muito satisfeita com o resultado, sobretudo porque os miúdos adoraram e porque finalmente lhe dei um bom destino.

This is a crochet rug I have made for the kids room with some scrap yarn left from my 9th grade weaving project  - that's right, my mother had this stashed for more than 25 years! It's a very thick tapestry wool yarn, rather difficult to work with, but I was pleased with how it turned out, especially because the kids were thrilled and because I have finally found some good use for it.

  5. That is an amazing rug! The colors pop and it looks like it has a good texture and like it will hold up well.

  6. Wonderful rug. I have plenty of scrap yarn and I have been thinking of making a rug out of it but I don't seem to find the time to do it.

  8. Oh my goodness that is vintage yarn, thank your mom for you. Funny how we save things. It turned out beautifully.

    CrochetDad was gifted some cotton yarn by his mother-in-law when she passed. He made a blanket for his granddaughter using it. That is heritage.
