Kitchen Rug

So last week I mentioned I spent some time in Florida. While I was there, my loving and crafty mother gave me some yarn. My husband would argue that she gave me half a store's worth of yarn but what does he know about a crocheters' needs, right?

Some of the yarn she gave me is Peaches & Creme cotton. She's been successful in making some rugs and showed me how, so I made my own. I just love the colors and how it turned out. Originally, I was going to have 2 different sets of small Granny's in the center and just do some single crochets around until it got the size I needed. As you can see from the picture, I just went with one set in the center of the rug and used the other set of Granny's as centers for matching pot holders.

I still have enough Granny's to make 2 more pot holders . . . but . . . I may hold on to those for now. I can see another rug in my future here soon!
