So I guess you all like cotton? ;-)
I really appreciate the advice. I purchased my last area rugs for my kitchen. I need 3. They were not cheap, and they technically should not have been machine washed, but this is the KITCHEN we're talking about and I have 2 kids. So they have been washed and they are ruined and I can't find exactly what I want, so I thought I would knit mine.
pinktoque, that idea sounds rather awesome!
Thanks for sharing, everyone!
