There are a lot of times where simple is best. This was a quick knit on circular needles with time being against me. I usually do a generic color but this was a request for a little girl. I used double wool throughout. I had different plys of wool that I mixed with white throughout. I had the fine baby wool which I find difficult to work with, just too fine to my liking. I used with the white what I called pink fuzzy and regular 8 ply pink to finish it. I used the a seed stitch for some texture with the fine baby wool. Changed to basic knit every row because of the pink wool being thicker BUT I was also wanting to finish on time to ship the rug before the precious little one arrived.
