The new project is a small antique adaptation so hooking should go quickly....I hope. That is unless I over think wool choices as in the past.
The original, below, measured 22 x 33. Figuring my friend Evelyn might like it sent her a photo. She suggested I do a pattern and said she wanted it to be small, around 14 x 20. And so that is the size it became.
Below what I've accomplished so far. Spike's original collar has off center spikes in it. But hooking the collar in #8 meant hooking in a straight line. The spikes are hooked using a shiny silver yarn.
Am attempting to make the rug look somewhat close to the antique. BUT....as far as the wool colors ~ ain't gonna worry about it as I'm using what I have.
Oh, on another topic, remember how clean my hooking area in the living room was in yesterday's post? Well I'm working on the cycle of creative chaos again....sigh.
Happy February 1st.
