Rug made from old yarn.

Earlier this year I inherited a few boxes and bags of old yarn. Some of it was so old I had never heard of the brand before. I could actually see how yarn has progressed over the years, from scratchy to soft. I didn’t have a clue at the time what I was going to do with it but then I was thinking “Rug”. If it’s scratchy then I won’t mind as much to walk on it, and for now it’s going to be in the basement anyways. So I got my Q hook and decided that I would use 6 strands of yarn at the same time and maybe that will make it softer as well. I didn’t have a pattern just some yarn and a hook. My first thought was, “this is going to be my big ugly rug”. I had some many different shades of all these colors and I had no idea where to start. I had a lot of off white/cream and grey so I decided that I would use those colors throughout the entire rug and I think that is one of the reasons it all came together. Good luck if you try this on your own! This rug is now one of my favorite pieces J
