Mountain Inspired Mug Rugs

Mountain mug rugs are inspired by the beautiful colours of the mountains, trees, and lakes and rivers. This set was made for a family who loves hiking in the mountains surrounded by beautiful foliage and trees of green. They spend time fishing in the rivers and lakes as they enjoy the view around them of the beautiful blue waters. Memories of the wonderful moments are woven into the colours of the Mountain Mug Rugs.

For this set I used a wonderful colour way from Sweetgeorgia Yarns www.sweetgeorgiayarns.com called Grouse. This colour is actually inspired by Grouse Mountain in the Vancouver area and was the perfect choice for the greens, browns and has a touch of blue too. For the lakes I used various colours of blues I had in my stash. A bit of gray is add in one for the mountains and on the hem stitch.

The pattern is simply 2 picks of one colour and 2 picks of the other colour. The length is about 5” long and the width is about 5”.

Mug Rugs are a wonderful way to personalize a gift for those you care about. They are also a great way to try a new pattern, stitch or colour way since they are small. I am off to try weaving something else on my next Mug Rug.

Brooks Bouquet scarf

This lovely lace scarf was hand woven with a beautiful Brooks Bouquet lace pattern. For this one I used two different gray sock weight yarns. One had a beautiful sparkle in it that adds a subtle glitter surprise to the scarf. I enjoy weaving Brooks Bouquet and would like to weave it again soon.

Yarn used was Tough Love Sock yarn on the warp and Cash Luxe Spark on the weft both in the silver colour way. You can purchase this yarn at www.sweetgeorgiayarns.com
