OMG, am so happy that I could scream! Yes, I still love the Horse Trainer rug, and yes it was fun to hook...the whipping? Uh, not so much. But it is finished and with that extra touch of whipping. The wool yarn was purchased from Ali Strebel at a rug camp and have two more hanks which have been dyed differently. Plus have a bit more of left over from Horse Trainer which can be used on a smaller piece.
Meanwhile, have no fear, my hands will be pulling loops ~ I'll work a little more on my grandson's Soccer rug. Heck, this will definitely be a piece of cake and no problem having it all done way before Christmas.
Have a great evening and hope my Canadian neighbors and friends still have electricity. Hope the impending other storm goes away.
