Betsy, of Heavens to Betsy wool fame, is a master at wide cut hooking. I'm talking about 1/2" hand torn strips. I'm guessing this pumpkin is about 13" across.
I love her patchwork back. Very primitive looking but also very neat. The back looks as good as the front!
Here's a large rug she is working on.
I never would have thought you could hook such a small rug with such a wide cut. I didn't measure it, but I bet it's no bigger than 14" x 18".
These are even smaller.
Betsy has some wonderful finishing techniques that she shared with us.
I really do like the patchwork backs. Looks great and will use up some of those small pieces of wool we all have.
I am so bad at names, that I am not even going to attempt telling you who hooked what unless I am totally certain. There were 24 of us and we had 3 Kathys, a Trish, a Trishia, 2 Jans . . . argh! Plus it was Betsy and Bev running the camp with Becky running the camp store.
Anyway, this fun rug was being hooked mostly in torn strips except for the leaves, I believe.
Eric, aka Mr. Heavens to Betsy, drew out this HUGE rug for one of the hookers. Can you believe this is only her third rug? She is doing a marvelous job! What fun colors in the fish.
I haven't had hook in hand since Saturday, but I am off to tear a few strips and give hand torn strips a try!
