Pinwheel Oval Rug

I wanted to use up the huge balls of Zpagetti and Strengels I had in my stash. I also wanted to create a rug to lay underneath our salon table. We used to have a rug in our previous home but it was a bit damaged so it did not come along to our new home. It has been four years since our rug left us, but right now, I managed to make a toe warming rug in my style (the colours and the pattern) and my husbands style, who thought a circle was a bit awkward to lay underneath our rectangular salon table. So that is why I designed it to grow into a more oval shape.
