Square Doily Rug Prototypes

Working with jute is rough and tumble,
i wrestle the fiber into shape, yank and pull it
and often, undo recalcitrant stitches, reshape errant loops. 
like some wools, there is VM -- vegetable matter
and then i remind myself that it is, in and of itself, spun vegetation.
Still, my floor is littered with dark brown, bark-like tags
that I've plucked from the rugged strands,
which i've tugged and rolled
from a 10-pound, pyramidal spool of 3-ply jute.

The rugs are approximately 36" square.
Made using L/8mm hook.
