Yesterday after posting a picture of the beginning hooking on Westmoreland Ponies Melinda Cole sent me a wonderful comment and a picture of the same design she also hooked.
Oh my, so now the pressure is on since I love her hooked version and light background color. The movement in the background has always been one of my favorite things to look at when first starting to hook. Sometimes I move away from that a bit and do the 'S' technique, depending on what I'm hooking. But still favor the ripple or echo effect. However, it seems some hooking teachers don't care much for that style.
I plan to do the ripple/echo on Westmoreland Ponies so am anxious to get further along on it. Perhaps tomorrow I'll give you an update on mine.
If any of you readers have hooked this rug and wish to send me a picture I'd be delighted to post it here and brag about you as well. Thank you Melinda for sharing and giving me permission to post your rug proudly on my blog.
Have a great evening everyone.
