Trinity, based on the basic log-cabin square blanket knitting pattern (really a method rather than a pattern). I had put it away because working with the 1" wide strips of cotton fabric on size 15 needles is not as relaxing as other kinds of knitting, but it was 85% finished. Or, I decided it just needed a little extra push to finish it, so I did. And I put the other balls of t-yarn in a pretty basket until I'm foolhardy enough to start another rug. So the kids' bathroom has a new, very knobbly, bathmat and my forearms and wrists are sore.
We just came back from a Memorial Day pig roast. What a neat idea for party hosts with lots more energy than we have! They had a whole pig stuffed with more pork roasts, rubbed with all sorts of yummy seasonings, wrapped in lots of heavy duty foil and chicken wire and slow-roasted overnight in a pit on their property. Then they brought it over to the Grange hall they had rented on a pickup truck, unwrapped it and served it there, along with a choice of barbecue sauces and the potluck dishes everyone else brought. And the weather was even nice (mid 60's and partly sunny)!
