Yippee, I accomplished one of my two goals before the end of 2015. One was to finish hooking A Day in the Country, a design by Tonya Robey of Mad Hen Prims. The binding won't be done until after I've accomplished goal two, which is to finish hooking the sheep rug. Hopefully I'll manage to complete that one in 2015 too.
Now I've a question for all you mathematical minded hookers or the ones who know the answer. How much yarn does it take to whip a rug? Below is a picture of the only skein that color which was dyed by my dear departed friend Lesley.
The round skein of yarn measures 26" in length and there are 35 strands. So doubled would be 52" x 35 = 1,820" (approx.). Am I on the right track here? The rug measures 25 1/2" x 33". How much would I need to whip the edge with that yarn?
And if there isn't enough to whip the edge with the yarn would use what I have and attach the binding tape to the outer edge of the rug. The pretty yarn would be hidden on the bottom but would cover the foundation at the outer edge.
Now to put the hook in my hand and work on the sheep.
Hope you are enjoying the calm day after the busy Christmas day. Thanks for dropping by.
