Sunday night, 8/22/10:
After getting my wool sorted, I began work on my locker hook rug. It was hot again today, so I decided not to do anymore yard work, maybe next weekend. This locker hooking is going really fast it seems. I plan a rectangle in the middle section surrounded by several border colors.
As I said I was anxious to see how far 8 yards of material will go. Well, I have a feeling that it is not nearly enough. There are 10 tiny squares to a blue-lined section, and the whole rug is 12x20 which is about 240 of those squares. I have done only 36 sections. I guess I am half way through my fabric, maybe even more. So, looks like a trip to the fabric store tomorrow and hopefully they will still have the same bolts of cotton I purchased the other day.
I had to put a bandaid on my right ring finger because I was beginning to feel a blister from where the hook rubs against it. Am I addicted????? The pain - the gain????
We are having a thunder storm right now, the satellite is down and hopefully I can read some of the blogs I follow before the electricity goes out. Til next time. /Deb
