      Susan, I decided to come over and see what you were working on after FINALLY leaving a really long reply to your comments on my photos of the denim rug.

      One of the things I enjoy most about these rugs is the very unique color combinations people come up with. Whether it's random or planned, that's what gives them life and personality. Yours are so striking and non-contrived. Bold and fun but very, very beautiful.

      Alas, you know how to crochet. (sigh) I'm really going to have to find someone who will sit down next to me and teach me. Maybe I should start asking men I know. None of the women I ask have a clue and wouldn't know a crochet hook from a dough hook.

      Very nice work.

      Youtube is the best ever to learn how to crochet a chain, =). I can crochet a chain, once you can do that you can make these rugs, Very very extremly simple to do. I can't do any other crochet things other than a chain =).

      Plus once you can do that, these rugs are more work to cut out the strips of fabric than anything else. I'd spend an hour or 2 or 4 cutting and (with a rotary cutter even!) then 30 minutes later be out of fabric =)

      I can say that braiding takes a LOT less fabric than crocheting. and this rug probably weighs 10-15 lbs.
      The outside blue ring is 1 entire top sheet, denim blue color. And sheets are much easier to cut and work with. just my 2 cents.
