Your bath mat turned out so well! It started raining overnight here too, and it woke me up. For a second I was all "what the hell is that?" It's RAIN!


Congratulations on selling the house! I love how the bath mat turned out. If I make one, I'll try your idea for making the rectangle one piece.


Wow, done already?!! You are amazing. Great rug, and thanks for the tips on making it all in one piece. A rug takes a lot of wear & tear!

Am glad you sold the house too; having someone buy it almost as-is sure saves you a lot of trouble too! Great!

Have a nice day everyone!


Cute mate-adorable really. Now you won't want anyone using it :)


Is snow normal in NM?

The mat is soooo cute, but I did wonder why it wasn't made in just one piece


I like your idea about a hope chest for the new place....your first item looks great!


Amazingly cute! It may have been a pain in the neck, but it came out great. FWIW, I rather like the visual interest the background squares provide. The angles going down the centers of the corner squares are attractive. Don't know if I'd have the patience to putz with it, but appreciate that you did! Glad to hear about the house sale, too.


I love your bath mat! Yay for new things for the new house!


All you need is your gauge and a bit of math to tell you how big of a starting chain to make. ;) (If you want to send me the stitch and row gauges, and the finished dimensions of the mat (without edging), I can do the math. ;) )


Thanks, Andrea. :) Dylan offered too, but if I ever did make it again I'm pretty good at eye-balling the proportions so I could probably get pretty close with the first try. :) But I doubt I'll ever do a bath mat again! LOL

Paula - You're right - the angled lines would definitely change when you went from decreasing to increasing for the corners. But I think losing the vertical & horizontal lines might be worth the sacrifice. :)

Vera - Snow is normal at the higher elevations & up on the Crest (the highest point on the Sandia mountains just to our East) but this MUCH snow is definitely out of the ordinary for us in Albuquerque. We've had entire winters where we've gone with just a dusting or two.

Deneen - You're right. I'll just hang it over the side of the tub for looks!

Thanks to everyone for the mat compliments! I really do think it's too cute. ::Grin::

Love the bathmat...but entirely too fiddly for me. Now, I might knit the mat part and succumb to crochet temptation for the ;) Good job!


I love your bath mat! Fishies Rock! My bathroom theme back in the US is fishies....or would be if everything was not in storage! :)
