I’ve worked hard for several days and I am making progress. Two octagons are finished and two more are getting there. And lots of strands of navy have been used. I originally thought that 6 skeins of navy would be enough to do the entire background. No such luck. I opened the 8th skein yesterday and I still have a ways to go.
Today’s goal is to finish the 3rd and 4th octagons and work my way down to the bottom left corner of the background. If I can get that much done today (big maybe), then I will be able to finish the rug by the end of the week. That’s what I’m hoping for and planning.
Here’s the rug this morning before I start my stitching.
