Yesterday the weather was just perfect. An absolutely wonderful day to spend hooking on the shores of Lake Erie. A hook in was held at the Catawba Island Club. A first class hook in hosted by hooker Rita Thomas. Thanks Rita for a little piece of hooker's heaven :)
Here's a fun finish to my chicken rug. I turned the linen forward as if I was going to whip it with wool yarn or wool strips.
I then tore a piece of wool to cover the linen that was showing. The piece was twice as wide as the exposed linen so that it would cover the front and back.
I then whipped it with cotton string (?) purchased from Cee Rafuse, Early Style Penny Rugs. I'm not sure how durable the rug would be if placed in a high traffic area on the floor, but I do like the finished look and I got many questions at the hook in on how I did it.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
