Bath Mat/Kitchen Rug KAL
Hi :D

I want to knit a bathmat and was thinking about a knitalong

Choose the yarn and the stitch pattern you prefer and start to knit a rectangle with garter or seed stitch border. No specific pattern required and no specific yarn.

Is anybody interested to join?

Last friday I bought 6 lbs of cotton blend yarn (50/50 cotton and polyamide) at ebay and I think I'm going to knit more than only one bathmat

6 lbs
But it really was a bargain

For my first one I will choose a nice textured knit/purl pattern and I will make a seed stitch border around the bathmat. The size will be about 20" x 30".

I'm impatiently waiting for my yarn....and for your answers

That sounds like so much fun! Unfortunately, on Monday I'm headed to Europe for three weeks, so I'm actually trying to wrap things up around here. Starting a new project probably isn't the best idea.

I am in the process of knitting sock for my mamma's birthday but my next project is a rug for my kitchen. So if you are still knitting by then I will post here my progress (It will be like two weeks must finish these socks. )

@ADAllen
Enjoy your trip to Europe! And be sure: when you are back, I will be still here knitting bathmats Remember, I've bought 6 lbs of yarn

@mintdee
Yes, I think in two weeks I'm still knitting bathmats
Do you have a pattern for your rug yet?

@Jan in CA
There is no hurry and there is no deadline. I think this knitalong will be alive a long time.....with 6 lbs of yarn I can do a lot of bathmats :D

I'm still waiting for my yarn

I will show you a picture of it.....that's called yarn porn, am I right?

This is my first knitalong (as well as my first bathmat :D ) and I'm really excited

There's a pattern for a bathmat in the Mason Dixon book. Just thought I'd let you know!

Actually I was thinking of using the chevron pattern with a garter stitch border.

I completed the Absorba Bathmat from the Mason Dixon book a few weeks ago. It was difficult because of the three strands used together.

I found this pattern for a kitchen mat. I'm going to make it one of these days...

I'm slooooooowly working on one. I was going to do the M/D log cabin one, but I was having such difficulty with the three strands of double worsted P&C that I switched it to straight garter stitch. It's coming along...maybe I can have it finished by the end of the summer!!

So maybe what I'm trying to do is ask if I can play along, even though it's already started!
