I was needing to hook a little rug for RHM... pronto.
So last night Jean Schroderus and I tagged teamed this little mat!
While I made supper she hooked and while she cleaned up I did!
This sky was made using a Burlington Bull's Eye.
Several people have been asking what can be done with this wool that is coloured in an unusual way, sure they say the wool is pretty but what can you do with it?
Burlington Bulls Eye: Excitement on the left, Calm on the right
The real question for me is why we don't understand the more interesting the wool we use the greater the symbiotic relationship between wool and object depicted,the greater the mystery and depth to the viewer. We are cutting the wool into strips anyway, why not create as much magic as possible in the dye pot?
Here is the mat Jean and I hooked with a half of the Excitement sample. I ripped it right down the middle and began to just hook my yellow circle and continued to use the strips as they came off making sure I kept blue to the left and violet mostly to the right. It is 10" x 11" using #7 cut and hand torn strips. The dark areas are the crow wool I just dyed for our recent videos.
Hope you find time to exercise your magic today !
