I am so relieved and content now that the spiral mat is all hooked. As much as binding is not one of my favorite things, it will be a welcomed task for this piece.
I'm very happy that I replaced the outer row of wool with black. Here is a picture of what was originally hooked for the spiral, but in a brown at some point.
Oh yeah baby...... big difference. But must admit there came a time in hooking this that I frankly didn't care what color or value the wool was hooked next as long as it wasn't the same color beside or below. Have me committed if I do another hit and miss any time soon. And think the geometric will stay put for a couple more years before it is pulled out again.
There is much I need to do before leaving next Saturday morning but at least now I'm not feeling anchored to the mat. So I'm free to do other tasks to get ready for camp and perhaps even pull a few loops on a new, fresh, project if I have time to relax here. Plus that project will be what is worked on the evening arriving at Woolley Fox and keep me occupied until Barb gets to my Oh Deer design in class.
No way did I want to take the spiral to work on at Barbs. That would be like taking dirty laundry with me. AHHHHHHH, a deep sigh of relief. Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend and happy Mother's Day to all.
