New Hooked Rug – Day 41 (rug back-extra)

This is an Extra!!  I’ll post my progress on the Front later today!!  : )

I have no idea why I thought that someone out there would be interested in the back of this rug…but I’m showing it so that the one person interested will be able to see it!!!!  LOL

As I said, I’m not sure if anyone is really interested in the back side of this rug…but I know that I enjoyed seeing the back of rugs when I first started hooking.  I remember being amazed at one well-known primitive rug hooker whose rug backs had large spaces between the hooked rows!  I later found several primitive hookers doing the same thing!  But not many people seem to show the backs of rugs!!  LOL

For some reason, I have always hooked close rows with narrow spaces showing on the back.  I felt that if my rug  steams flat and smooth after hooking,  I am doing alright with my spacing.   Of course too close spacing can buckle the backing and weaken the rug.  Beginners who have tried hooking in every space have found that out fast!!!!  : )

See you later today!  Keep on Hooking!  : )
