Pulling a Few Loops



Sunday greetings to you :)
 
My weekend has been a busy one.  A primitive show and a craft show yesterday.  I got some sleigh bells to take to Tuba Christmas next Sunday (bells are a MUST) and picked up a few locally made Christmas gifts.  Decorating, decorating and more decorating.  Pictures will come in a later post. 
 
I even found time to pull a few loops.  Can you believe (well, you hookers will believe) that I did not have one wool suitable for a snowman?  I won't hook with white and I didn't want the snowman to be too primitive.  Thankfully Monday I headed to Connie's and she had the wool I was looking for.  I didn't realize that I had overdyed all my light colored wools.  Here is the wool I came home with . . .
 
 
. . . and here is my progress so far.   

 
Maybe I'll get him done in time for gift giving.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

lauren he's just the perfect color. I didn't understand until just recently what my teacher was telling me about how hard it was to find light colors so I'd better snatch them up when I saw them. You've been a busy gal decorating, shopping and still managed to find a few minutes to hook.....I need to take a time craft management seminar. LOL!

I love that wool too. I did the same thing, I have over dyed all of my light colors. Thankfully I have a order coming today. I love your snowman. I am so glad you got to pull some loops. Have a lovely week.
