Finished Object Friday: Crochet T-shirt Yarn Rug

It's a finished object.
I like it.
But it's all wrong.
My excuse: my first big crochet project. But the crochet bit is fine, just the counting and increasing isn't, and I'm not quite sure what happened because I really tried to get it right.
Ah well. the kids have adopted it as the perfect princess / fairy castle carpet.

In it: lots of memories. T-shirts of women's 10ks, Glasgow-Edinburgh cycles, Celtic Connection t-shirts, Mike Scott and other music t-shirts. Plus some charity shop finds. 13 t-shirts, one big heavy and colourful rug.

I could take it back and try again, maybe I will, but not just now. I've got some unfinished project to finish off, because I'm in the finishing off, and not the starting again mood.

And anyway, doesn't she look cute sitting on it? Who cares about the waves.

It looks great! A perfect princess carpet :) Crocheting circles is hard!! So tricky to get the counting right - no matter how closely you think you're paying attention. I have the same trouble when I crochet my baby hats - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and I don't know why! But it's still fun :)
