Scrap yarn throw rug
The lazy ends of summer make me want to use up the small, scrappy bits of yarn I've been saving thriftily all year long. Combined with two skeins of really stringy, fuzzy mystery yarn gifted to me by a friend, I figured a crocheted rug would be the perfect project -- not too fussy, not too difficult to make whilst sipping iced tea and eating cookies with friends in the backyard on a Sunday before September. This took me a couple of days to complete, including blocking (I'm sure there's some wool in there somewhere). It'll look nice on my kitchen floor. No pattern for this, just single crochet, round and round, on a summer's day.
