My normal hooking style is to have all my loops be like little soldiers all neatly standing next to each other. I prefer to hook with long wool worms. I strive to have all my loops the same height.
Now meet Ole Jack. This is Cathy's version of the antique rug. Saundra had sent me a photo of the original rug, but I'll be darned if I can find it.
Here is my start. This has been hard for me.
Shorter worms. Wonky. Different heights of my loops. Hopefully I will make time to work on it soon so I don't totally forget what I am doing! I am loving it so far. My horse is the smaller of the two sizes Cathy offers, but at 28" x 39" it is plenty big for me.
Cathy is a wonderful teacher and if you ever get a chance to take a class with her, jump at the opportunity!
After getting home from rug camp Thursday evening, I had to gather up my goods and head to Malabar Farm on Friday to set up for Saturday's hook in. I still can't yet sit back and relax because I am vending at another hook in on October 9 . . . then maybe I can breathe.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs 😊
