Pulled the last loops today and now needs steaming and the binding to make it complete. Just couldn't wait to show it to you; the finished size is 15 x 21 1/2. The photo below is without a flash as the background color most resembles my background color in person.
And this photo is with a flash. Which means somewhere between the two pictures is what you'd see in person. When the lighting is better I plan to post a photo on Facebook.
After doing a search learned it was the War advertising council in the year 1944. That is when scraps of metal, clothing and anything else useful for the war effort could be used, saved, obtained, etc.
Admittedly the rug I designed was inspired by the gals who posted their photos of a "Friendship" rug on Facebook. So thanks gals.
