The rainbow rug, in it's current state, is on it's way to being no more.
It is the right decision. I think I decided it was quite a long time ago but the amount of work I'd put in so far made me hesitant. I was jolly impressed by how many people liked it - thanks so much for all the comments. There's nothing better than a community you can turn to for a bit of yarny advice.
I have a few ideas of how it might come back together but I'm going to have a good play with these lovely balls of colour before making any final decisions.
In other hooky news... I've been making half-hexagons to fill the gaps in my blanket.
And I'm starting to put together some tutorials for a big hexagon blanket 'how to' as well.
Only the edging (and those ends) left to go....
