I'm loving how the Horse Trainer is coming along and am close to pulling the last loops. So naturally I'm antsy to start something new. That new project would be my grandson's next gift. His very most favorite sport to play is soccer and it didn't get hooked into his last Christmas gift. Only Nascar, the Orioles and Redskins made it in the hooked gift.
Since Zach's favorite soccer team is from Barcelona I'm going to hook their logo. I've started gathering colors and even pulled some yellow strips from my wool worms. The outline of the logo is hooked in a blue black so pulled what seemed to work and when taking this picture below, it showed up purple.
So back to my shelf and pulled out this piece of wool for the photo and it shows up too brown. There is plenty of dark black/blue wool on my shelf so will find something suitable when time to start hooking.
Normally I don't sew on my binding first UNLESS I know for sure the margins or borders will not change. Sewing on the binding before hooking makes it so much easier when binding time happens. Uh, still don't like doing the binding part but it is easier. Happy February 1st everyone. Saundra
