Beginning a Braided Rug


The weather guy says if you go outside,you’ll die in 15 minutes or something like that. (It’s really cold here)
It’s a good day to start piecing the braids together I made from t-shirt yarn.
It’s my first braided rug. I have no idea what I’m doing but so far, it’s looking ok.

I added the burnt orangey color in because I was afraid I was going to end up with something that looked like hunter’s camouflage. I was trying to a color scheme to match the cushion I made for this gigantic papasan-style couch (seriously, this thing is huge. It’s bigger than the double papasans made now)  we scored at a rummage sale for $5 ….  browns & greens,mostly.

Incidentally, my cat matches the papasan cushion. Sooo…. maybe I’m really crafting cat-camo?
