The wool yarn did arrive yesterday and I've begun whipping the edges of the eagle rug. Won't show you any progress until it is completely bound. But will show you how well the wool matches the rug. Check out Ali Strebel designs as she does sell various colors of yarn on her web site HERE. And it is a wonderful thick wool for whipping with one strand. If you want a special color combination for your rug contact her and she will overdye what you ask. The special order cost is a couple dollars more per hank than listed on her web site but oh so worth it.
The sheep has been folded up with the wool strips and will remain in solitary confinement until such time I'm ready to decide it's fate. Meanwhile I'm working on Going in Circles, which was my plus one project a couple months ago.
Since the sheep has been put to bed (so to speak) I'll be looking for my next one soon. So be prepared to see more antique rug posts.
