Shaker Style Rug update


I've been a little more adventurous with my knitting this week. One square is a more complex pattern. It shouldn't have been hard but I found myself unpicking it quite regularly - maybe it had something to do with knitting in front of the TV. Anyway, despite the unpicking frustration, another three squares are completed, two in garter stitch (plain) and one in a leaf pattern.
