I have flip flopped between 3 projects over the last few weeks and decided to concentrate on just one to get it finished. The "Have You Any Wool" is a pattern offered by Woolley Fox and put it on hold because of the border. Sure thought my color planning would work out perfectly but suddenly became undecided.
Looking at the pattern saw the sheep as a skein of yarn so chose to hook the sheep like that. Was totally happy how the sheep turned out so my plan worked even though I know a tail of a sheep is longer than hooked.
The border is my problem. Actually am happy with the dark part of the plaid as the border but wasn't sure what to do with the leaves and pennies (flowers).
Seems I boxed myself into a corner with limited color choices for leaf colors. So guys and gals who visit my blog I thank you for taking the time to visit and comment. Nothing fake about me, I tell it like it is and show my true self.
I love hooking rugs but struggle with color planning like the rest of you....or perhaps some of you. If only I'd taken this to a class with Barb Carroll she would have fixed my problem in a nano second.
Have a great evening everyone.
