Three in, Three out

We have been invited to a Country House weekend next month by friends celebrating a 70th birthday. Very posh.  So I went to the most upmarket charity shop in town last week to see if I could find something  to wear.  I purchased  3 new jumpers - two are lambs wool so need hand washing.

So 3 worn out jumpers had to go.  I am very strict as I am trying to reduce storage areas - what is the point of filling up valuable space with clothes you don't wear (out of date, no occasion to use, wrong size, worn out)?

So 3 worn out jumpers joined the worn out fleeces in being prepared to be made into a rag rug! 

Now the evenings are dark it is a comfortable activity stitching the plaited "worms" together sitting in front of the log fire.  I need about 20 of these - they are about 6 ft long! There is nothing much on TV needing full attention so I will be pleasantly occupied till Christmas.


  1. I spend the evenings knitting something that doesn't take loads of attention after I have the pattern down. A cup of tea or hot chocolate, a bit of television and my knitting in hand makes me happy.

    I can't wait to see your rag rug once finished.

    God bless

  2. Great idea and a brilliant use of old products.

  3. I really love this wormy rug. I prefer it to the pom pom one I'm currently making so may use all the pompoms elsewhere. Catriona

    1. Pom Poms - how does that work? Now I will have to look that up in Pininterest!

  4. I think this is one of the most significant information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article.
    But should remark on some general things, the web site style is perfect,
    the articles is really great : D. Good job…
