My current apartment may not be worthy of hosting nobility, but I am pretty proud of the hardwood floors. There's just something nice about hardwood, it's easy to clean and it just looks so elegant. The unfortunate thing about hardwood floors is that in the winter months, it's pretty unforgiving (unless you have heated baseboards, but who's that fancy?). There are few things worse than waking up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and have your feet - still warm from your blanket - hit the icy cold floor in those brief moments before you find your slippers.
What if I told you that instead of a frigid floor, you could plop your feet down on a plush, soft wool carpet ... that you made yourself!? The dream is real, thanks to the ExpressionFiberArts YouTube channel's simple tutorial that shows you how to make a cute circular rug in no time. No crochet needles and hooks? No problem! All you need to make this rug is some wool (high-quality stuff like the merino wool in the video is preferred) and your own two hands. I'm hardly a master of the knitting arts but this tutorial makes it look easy enough for even me to try it. Goodbye cold feet, hello cozy comfort.
