Yarn Along -Tons on the needles

Joining in today for Ginny's yarn along.  I have a few things going on but I did complete a crochetted rug for the bathroom. 

My original thought was it would go into the playroom but halfway through I changed my mind. 

 I started making a circle kind of like a doily or round crochet motif and then went around making a border 3-5 rows of a sisel cotton twine from the hardware store and then a row or 2 of cotton yarn.  I'm not very good at writing patterns I just make it up as I go along.  I really liked crochetting with the cotton twine and I see more rugs in my future.
 Making progress on my sweater.  So excited I'm staring to see a pattern like the one on the cover.
 I shouldn't be doing this but I added one more project to the knitting needles.  I couldn't resist continuing this one making a tote out of plastic bags.  (I'll have more on this soon.)ut
With everything on the needles and hooks I haven't been reading at all but I did get a few more books came my way last week.
100 Best Books for Children (I came across this at the thrift store and thought it would be handy.

Love to hear what you're makeing :)

The rug is awesome!! You did such a fantastic job, I think I would have to shoo people off of it, if it were in my house. ;-) Great idea making a tote out of plastic bags, can't wait to see the finished project.

That rug is amazing! I've been doing crocheted rag rugs with old sheets, but this has a touch of elegance.

The rug is so gorgeous!!!
Love the pattern and the texture too...
I do think using twine would be ideal for the bathroom..

I read "Guernsey" - nice story. And we have that knitting book at our library.

I love your rug!! I can't do that, because when I crochet anything in the round, it never lays flat - I have a tendency to yank on the yarn, which draws it up and makes it sort of buckle. It's not affecting what I'm making now because it's a bag, and doesn't need to lay flat. Otherwise, I'd like to make rugs.
