Well, you just knew I couldn’t wait to start my new Mystery Rug! I’ll be hooking a couple of things in January but I was excited to use the wools I pulled out for this…so I made a start before January 1st…! 🙂
I decided to hook something I thought was beautiful…rather a departure for me as “beauty” is not usually the first thing that comes to mind when I decide upon a design! I do have a place for this rug already…as I said, I will be sizing my rugs so that I can hang them to replace rugs already hanging in my home. The changing seasons are perfect for changing the rugs around…so I’ll have fun!
I am experimenting with a border this time…trying out a plaid wool that is a different colour from my plaid background…but not too much!!! I think my background wool reads as “warm” and the border wool reads as “cool”…so we’ll see how it works. 🙂
Tomorrow I will show you the 2 wool plaids I am using so you can see how they hook up.
So here is Progress on Day 1…Happy New Year Everyone! And…Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
