Sheep at the Beach is the name of the pattern design given the 30th anniversary of Rugs by the Sea. The last loop was pulled this afternoon, it has been steamed, now resting and waiting binding.
Recipients of this generous gift could make it into a mat, purse, tote, pillow, etc. It was a basic sheep design so each could do our own thing. But the name lends itself to indicate the sheep is at the beach. The beach is only two blocks away from the Chalfonte, where classes are held.
As much as I wasn't looking forward to hooking it I'm so glad I did.
Below is the basic design gifted to each participant last September. Except there were no exterior lines drawn since we could make it into any size. I drew those lines 1" from the edge of the monks cloth to ensure my design didn't exceed that.
Wasn't sure what it was going to be but had planned to go 'small' to get it finished early. As it turned out I used that whole space to end up with a mat measuring 12 x 16.
tutorial of how this one is bound on my next post. Uh, when I get around to binding it.
