Is there a way to make carpet using nodes if yes is there a tutorial anyone knows of?
If you want a fur carpet you have to make it using particles, as @Modron says. Here you can find a video tutorial.
If you want a kind of fabric or upholstery material, I have published several materials in my blog. You can download the blend file in blendswap.
cool blog, man.
See if this tutorial gives you any ideas.
