You know how that oldie song goes, right? Well maybe not all you newbie hookers but us olde timers remember how the song goes. Anyway, I showed you a few days ago how my spiral rug was going and showed you the beginning hooking of the spiral. When I decided to draw my design out I couldn't find the tutorial on Karen Kahle's blog so drew something from a dish that was 12" in diameter ~ surely that would be large enough, right? The drawing went just fine the first time and so did the hooking as you can see from my first post.
Check out Karen's design.
So after reading the blog noticed Karen made hers 14" in diameter and 2" between spirals. Mine was only 12" in diameter and less than 2" between lines so it would look weird. So I pulled out the loops in mine, flipped the linen over and redrew the design. Oh but what a mess.
So then I got brave and started all over again rehooking. Okay, okay, I gotta tell ya that when I first heard of HIT AND MISS years ago I was sure it was a piece of cake HA! I didn't find it easy because you not only have to worry about how many of your favorite or accessible colors are too close together but you have to worry about value. You can't have too many brights or lights and you need to have them separated by mediums and darks.
And for those of you who follow my Benny Ben he is enjoying his new playground and I'll post pictures of eventually. Last night the weather was so nice that I sat an hooked on the deck while he enjoyed his freedom outside.
Thanks for visiting and wherever you are viewing my blog from.... enjoy your season. Right now it is comfortable here in Delaware, USA but the next three days will be HOT HUMID AND OPPRESSIVE. But for WhiskerSUE, you're in winter.
