At l(e)ast it's finished

When I started knitting this back in January I wasn't sure what it would be. I was just trying to knit something to get out of the knitting rut (and the depression) I was in. Using up some cotton scraps, creating a rectangle, that I would be able to use somehow.
Well, that didn't work to get me out of that rut and half a rectangle remained forgotten in my knitting basket for months.
This weekend I decided I needed some knitting to take with me to the house, but I'd like something more washable than the poncho. I took that once, but most of the time I didn't want to take it out because I was afraid it might get dirty. I thought I'd start knitting some cotton squares for potholders (I need some and my family loves it when I give them some) and then realized I was still working on this rectangle. So I took that with me.
Last night I finished it and this morning I wove in all those ends.
I still don't know what I'll use it for. It's big enough for me to stand on, so I could use it as a shower mat (maybe add a backing and or border?), it's also big enough to use under my drainer.
Really, I don't know what I made. But it is finished. I like that.

Linking up with Nicole's Crafting on


  1. I like it under your drainer! Looks like life is getting balanced and you are forging ahead to your future. So happy for you.

    1. Me too! I think it will end up there.
      And yes, all the pieces of the puzzle that life tends to be are falling into their places. I like that.

  2. beautiful and I like both options of how to use the finished project!!

    1. Thanks! I like them both too, but I guess T. wlll think it's too small for a bathmat, so I'll use it under the drainer.
