Today a reader wrote to ask what wool I was using for the brown border (yesterday's blog post) as she was looking for a brown for her background. Below is an updated photo of the Challenge rug with that brown border.
So if any of you are interested in gathering your selvages to do a rug hook-a-long, start collecting now. I think I'd like to make mine oval so it (hopefully) will resemble a thick braided rug, albeit hit and miss. This would be a project that I could work on as my selvages increased and in-between fun hooking projects during the winter. It wouldn't require color planning, no extra buying of wool, just using up which would be thrown away otherwise.
Have a great evening everyone.
