Crocheted Doily Rug

It has now been over a year since I started on my crochet craze and I haven't got sick of it. Just the opposite in fact, I am loving crocheting and I am always looking out for new and different things to try. I am so happy with my waxed Irish linen line - so far I have just made rings and bracelets, but who knows what will come next?!?

While checking out crochet magazines and patterns I came across crocheted rugs and loved them. Then of course thought that I had to try them....so, based on this doily pattern

Spiderweb Crocheted Pink Doily/Placemat

I made this

It needed to be laid out a little better, but as soon as I put it on the floor, the curious one came over to check it out. She seemed to quite like it! I made a mistake with this one, which I didn't realise until I had finished it. I was really upset, but then figured it was my first attempt and now I love it! My husband said it would also make a great Christmas tree skirt. I used a Panda chunky wool for this and I have some in pink - I can't wait to try another one!
