This Week’s Theme: Yarn

In honor of National Pink Day, I present this fabulous hot pink crocheted rug created by fiber artist Kara of Petals to Picots. She made it for her daughters’ bathroom and shows us how to make it for ourselves. I love the color and simplicity of it with a pop of fabric to make it interesting.

About Kara:

My love of crochet started when I was little and I would sit and watch my grandmother — my Nonna — crochet beautiful afghans, tablecloths, baby clothes, and so much more. When I was 9 years old she gave me my own hook — which I still have now, over 30 years later — and taught me how to crochet. And I have been crocheting ever since! From trying new patterns to designing my own, I always have a crochet project stashed in my bag.

Some trivia about pink from NationalDayCalendar.com:

The Rococo Period (1720-1777) was the golden age for the color pink. Pastel colors became very fashionable in all the courts of Europe during this time.  Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764), the mistress of King Louis XV of France, was known for wearing the color pink, often combined with light blue.  At one point in time, Ms. Pompadour had a particular tint of pink made specifically for her.

 Inspiration

“I will not play tug o’ war. I’d rather play hug o’ war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.” ~ Shel Silverstein

Happy Coloring!
