First and foremost, the link to this wonderful doily:

I am using a yarn known as PP yarn among local vendors. It is the abbreviated form of Polypropylene Yarn. The qualities of this yarn make it a perfect choice for the purpose of this rug. Check them out:

  • Being bacteria and micro-organism resistant, it is moth proof, rot proof and resistant to growth of mildew and mould.
  • It is environment-friendly as it is recyclable and incinerates to ashes.
  • Being highly flexible it maintains flexibility even at temperatures of -55 degree Celsius.
  • Stain resistant means it has a low water absorption property which makes it easy to repel any kind of water borne stains.
  • It is quick drying as it has a low water absorption property.
  • Colour retention means it does not fade away as the colour is woven into the strands.

And now for my progress on in –

Seven rows done. It’s late in the night I and need to get some sleep.

Ninth row almost done when I run out of yarn. Will have to get more yarn but the question is will I get the same colour. If not, I will have to try a mix and match.

I finally got time to go get yarn but my fears proved to be real. No, the same colour was not available in the desired amount. But that was good in a way as I got to do a mix of colours.

I decided to go with white and I am pretty happy with my decision.

In this update I have completed row 15 but I still have 19 more to go.

And finally, today, 10th July 2017, after 2 months the final row is done!

This ‘doily’ now has a 48 inch diameter and makes for an impressive rug!
