Large Purple Granny Rug

I finally finished this rug yesterday morning, after I first bought this yarn in July 2009! So that's 2 and a half years from start to finish, a very long term project indeed!

For this I used my 5mm hook, a bigger hook makes the rug go faster and for this one it needed all the help it could get. This is the largest rug I've done and it doesn't even cover my queen sized bed! It's only slightly larger than my other 'therapy rug'. I don't think I'll be doing many of these, they are kinda boring. I just did a bit when watching TV. I find smaller projects that finish quicker much more satisfying. Also, considering there is almost $20 worth of acrylic yarn in this rug I'm thinking it's not really worth it. You can pick up a nice cotton blanket for less and it's larger, you can also get polar fleece blankets for less and I think they're warmer. So, not many more of these rugs from me! The pattern is a simple granny square, with 3 rows of dc at the end. The corner has an extra 7 dc in it.

I'm not sure where this rug is going, maybe on the single guest bed as it's too small for the big bed. I'm just so glad it's finished!
