I still had quite a bit of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes leftover after I finished my granny squares. I started playing with rectangular granny’s with the yarn held double and I made myself a little wool rug.

It’s pretty small because I ran out of yarn, but it’s big enough to make a nice bedside rug. It’s probably best that it’s small because I’ll have to wash it in the sink so it doesn’t shrink. The wool does feel really nice underfoot, but I was a little worried about what caring for a bigger rug would be like.

I’m thinking of making another larger rug using acrylic. I just have to decide on the colors. I wanted to make an orange and white one, but I feel like white on a rug is a terrible idea for someone like me.
