Here we go…!!!
By the way, this rug is a 28 x 43 inch rug with large motifs…so it takes me quite a while to hook each part and the background around the different parts!!! lol
And we have another leg almost finished!!! I will do the boot today and Dr. Sopwortt will have legs and feet..!!! Hooray!
Sir Willifried’s hooking isn’t even started yet…so we’ll see the type of clothing HE has chosen to wear later on.
The boot trim (the black) is a solid colour as I did not want any “shadings” in this area.
One of the things that this rug will show is the difference between solid colour wool and plaids when hooked. Now I will exaggerate this difference to suit my purposes here but I think you will see why I choose a lot of plaids to work with….as it suits my “folk art” style!
Rug hookers working with fine cuts often use the solid colours in different values to achieve beautiful shading…like in the petals of flowers or in a portrait.
I am using #6 cut and #4 cut in almost everything so far except for the tiny black outline used when needed. I just cut a tiny width off of one of my strips for that.
My cold seems to be better so I’ll continue the hot tea with lemon and honey routine, rest and just hook away! Hope any colds You have will be much better today!!!!! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
