The snow has been pretty deep in these parts. This photo was taken two weeks and about 24 additional inches ago. The snow is up to the second pane of my livingroom windows. The wind is howling, and my little dog has taken to peeing on the stairs before I can convince him to venture further out into the cold. If it were up to him he would never go out and just explode on the first day of Spring.
Yesterday the wind chills were so low that we didn’t venture out all day. I drank tea, Doug slept a lot and went down the hall to visit our neighbors. I did some laundry and in doing so realized that Doug has a plethora of old beat up blankets. So it was time for a project.
Just in case this turned into one of my other undone projects I decided to only utilize two of the said blankets.
Then I started coiling the braids and tying them into themselves with small strips of the extra blanket pieces. I used to make these by actually braiding them into themselves so you braid as you coil but when the rug gets big its a real drag. When you come to the end of a braid you tuck it into the bottom and tie it down with extra blanket scraps.
Keep going until it starts to grow or you run out of blanket as I did.
