Well, actually it is MY dilemma with hooking Hannah rather than Hannah being the problem. Perhaps the reason I air my dirty laundry is to show you newbies that even seasoned hookers have hooking issues. Or at least this one does, and being self taught am not ashamed of my hesitation.
I wanted Hannah to be a mixture of reds since she is going in my kitchen as that color makes me happy in the morning. In yesterday's post there were a few pieces of wool under consideration for the background. With a few more loops pulled and changes managed to get part of Hannah hooked so some background could be hooked in to see.
Here are those two sections below. Lighter to the left and darker to the right.
Here is that picture of those options posted on yesterday's blog.
The initial color planning was to use one or the other of the top two wools as the background. Then a mixture of two or all of the wool at the bottom for the ground color and elsewhere.
My concern was that the wool on the right would be too close in value with the ground green. But that wasn't my only concern. Hannah needs to have a noticeable wing. I'm still not sure the value is different enough for it to show up. Will just do it "one loop at a time".
Even now looking at the colors on my monitor of the background don't know what I'll do. However, I'm leaning toward the lighter color on the left as it will work better with the ground colors I'd chosen.
Hey, ya know what.... this is a journey and entertainment for me so it ain't over til the fat lady sings. I can hook loops, pull them out and put something in it's place.
This is a great design by Woolley Fox and can be found on the "keeping the Past Alive" folder.
Have a great evening.
