Yippee, the horse rug is all hooked and steamed. And just before pulling those last loops I knew how it was going to be bound....with Ali Strebel's dyed wool yarn. Not knowing if I had enough of the yarn left I measured it to see if there was (that length at the bottom of the rug). Want to know the formula?

Well dang, not quite enough left of that color to whip the edge of the horse rug. I have two other skeins of different colored dyed wool from Ali but the brown variegated is what I thought would match best. So I ordered two skeins and they arrived yesterday.
If you would like to purchase some wool yarn, patterns, etc., visit Kindred Spirits. The variegated wool yarn is not shown on her web site, only the solid is so you would need to ask for it. And it is $20 per skein whereas the solid is $17. Here are the three colors I have.
Ali does custom dyeing and one-of-a-kind dyeing; so if there is something special you need, she's the gal to contact.
I've started working on my new project and will show you my progress in a couple days. Do you believe tomorrow will be December??? Oh my but life is zooming by in a flash and too fast for me. It is cloudy, cold and dreary outside so think I'll stay in and play with wool strips. Perhaps I'll start preparing the horse rug for binding later today. You all know how I hate to bind but with interesting wool it makes it a little more fun to see the colors develop. Perhaps that's the key to turn my feelings about binding around 😁.
