Have You Any Wool?

Yup, that's the name of the pattern I'm working on.  It is a pattern design by Carol Endress and offered by Woolley Fox except it isn't listed on the web site.  So if you are interested please contact Katie.

Those of you who said the sheep looked like a skein or ball of yarn were correct.  That is exactly what my vision was but wasn't sure I'd be able to pull it off.  The difficulty was the head and the rear due to shape.  But still glad it was good enough that some knew.

Since yesterday have decided on two possible background and border choices.  What makes the decision difficult is having a GREY sheep and BLACK face and legs.  So a light background would conflict with the light grey sheep.  A dark background would loose the legs of the sheep.

OH NO.... what's a hooker to do?  (a little humor here).
So looking thru my humongous stash of wool knew there WAS an answer.  Above is a teal plaid which just might work.  The light teal strip cut for the background would be nice and the darker section for border would work well with adding flowers of any color.
My other thought was a red background and using the black legs and face for the border and using the red for flowers.

So, stay tuned to find out what I decide.  BUT... as always do truly enjoy your input.



  1. Hi Saundra I liked the way you hooked the body of the sheep! You are such a good hooker!

  2. I am looking forward to seeing which way you go with your background.

  3. Think the red would be fun!! Guess, we never know till u start!! Going to be fun,, love ,,,

  4. Both are good. You know I love red, but the teal is really second favorite

  5. Hi Saundra,
    You KNOW I LOVE RED, but that teal is wonderful and looks great!! Hmmmmm....maybe you can use the red in the flowers? Will be excited to see what you decide!!! It is a FUN RUG!!!
    Heart Hugs~
