My First Plarn Rug!

This is my first attempt at making a plarn rug!  I still have a ways to go, but I thought I'd share what I've done so far.  I'm liking it...  Although crocheting with 3 strands at the same time, means cutting and making a lot of plarn a long the way!

I'm also really concerned that I'm going to run out of the beige Fred Meyer shopping bags.  I am realizing that one rug will probably take 300+ bags to create.  Fortunately a friend dropped off a bunch to me over the weekend, so I should have enough (but I'm crossing my fingers that I am right!)

I am also learning that it takes a LONG time to create one rug.  I've already have put in several hours, and I have at least triple that time to go.  Again, it is all about the amount of cutting and looping it takes to make enough plarn.  By the time I am done I will probably be dreaming of grocery bags!
