Mother with Fishbowl is going back in the bag and sit on the sidelines again. This time probably longer than before. At least I mustered up courage to re-hook the bulbous nose which bothered me. And think I know what that issue was. Here is the AFTER photo.
When starting the pattern in class I was determined to hook in #6 cut. But with Cindy Irwin's guidance realized that was too large and reduced to #5 and lower where needed. Some of the #6 was replaced but not all ~ not that section of the nose.
Here is the BEFORE. If you look carefully you may notice the difference. Also I'd also tweaked the nostril which looked unnatural.
Meanwhile I'm binding this beauty. This is a one-of-a-kind design hooked by me on the fly (re-designing as I hooked) inspired by the beautiful over-dyed wool purchased from Cindy at rug camp. Am so glad that wool tantalized me those days at camp because it is a beautiful color.
