Now as you know if you have seen any of my “progress” rugs…I don’t leave the background for last…! That would drive me nuttier than I already am!!!!! :) So, of course, you get to see photos of “background” along with “motifs”! Today’s hooking will bring tears of joy to your morning! LOL
Oh, by the way, sometimes rug hooking people like to know just what is going on with a particular rug…little things like what I am using, what cuts of wool, etc. I am using some woolworms, as I said, so those are of different size cuts…but mostly, this rug is being hooked with 100% wool on a linen background (except for that wool I found was NOT 100% wool) and I am using #8 cut, #6 cut and a little of #5 cut for most of this. I will use a #4 for some little detail but it is mostly numbers 8 and 6.
The wools are mostly plaids, textures and hand-dyed…some dyed by me and some by other wool colourists.
