Thought since this pattern was small it would go fast ~ and it probably will once the wool gets right. My plans for the background/sky just didn't make the cut. It is way too light and bright. You can barely see the hooked section above the cat. Plus it would be too light in value compared the wool I've planned for the church birdhouse.
So, into a pot of Warm Sky (Beautiful Wool) dye recipe it went. There was about half a yard of wool and I used 1 TBS + 1 tsp. of dye. This is how it turned out. The left are the results and the right is the other part of the yard I purchased. Have no idea why I purchased it but with the dyeing it will do fine. Matter of fact tomorrow think I'll do the remainder in a little darker pot so there will be a variance.
Stay tuned to see Cat Nap. Can't wait until it is done because I'm hot to trot for my next antique adaptation. Think it will be another Magdalena rug ~ or at least that is my plan now. But you know how hot and cold I run with what's on the frame.
Happy Tuesday, happy hooking and hope you are all in a 'good place' since there is so much chaos in the world. When news gets to me I change the channel or turn it off. After all, why would I expose myself to such negativity? I choose to surround myself with happiness.
