If I was a gambler I'd have placed two bets with equal money because I knew either Elaine or Jo would be the first to complete the Challenge task first. Jo is a work horse and don't think she sleeps at all, just hooks. Elaine is used to hooking with different textiles so this exercise didn't slow her down at all.
Here's Elaine's wonderful work. She used sweaters, sari silk, wool, yarn and can't recall what else but wrote about it in a previous post.
This is Jo's beautiful finish.
These are the textiles Jo used; it looks like woven cotton, homespun, some yarn and some wool.
Oh my do I have a new respectful fondness for our beloved wool. It is so pliable, soft, oh well, ya'll know. Please try this challenge even tho it may be uncomfortable. It is a great experience. Fantastic job Elaine and Jo and am so honored you joined the group.
