Vacation Week!! Doesn't get any better! I just love being home, doing lots of hooking, planning a big day of dyeing wool today. I've really flown through this rug, though all that hit or miss was a task, for sure.
The border is a muted green wool with a touch of rose. I only have two skeins of homespun to choose from to whip it with. I'm not sure I like either of them.
Here they are against the rug.
I may end up having to go hunt out a different shade yarn at Wool and Goods.
It's been really fun to find out that some of my fellow blogging friends are getting bitten by the hooking bug. One thing that has been great for me is how much I've learned with each rug. I was looking back at some of my earlier efforts and I just have to laugh at those little mats...like this one!
I had no idea what I was doing with this schooner. The hooking is crazy tight! The color planning is just off...I wasn't dyeing my own wool back then...just using what I had from thrift stores, as is! Looking at this and comparing it to my latest rug...well, they're world's apart.
So, if you are just starting off...keep hooking, because things do get easier and the rugs get better! Thank goodness!
