My formula is to take the size of your table and multiply it times 5 and that is about how much space your wool takes up no matter what sized rug you are working on. The concept of less is more does not pertain to wool.
In this shot, I am pretending that I am a wool worm surveying my domain. I turn to my neighbor as I mumble, it looks like the feeding of the 5,000 again for dinner tonight, dear.
Staying within the bounds of table surfaces is a real struggle. And it is painful to have to show you how out of control things can get. And this photo was taken after I neatened up, vacuumed and picked up what fell onto the floor! But when inspiration is flowing, I am frantic with my craft, oblivious to neatness and organization, plowing ahead with singularity of vision, mindful of only the event of creating.
Thanks for understanding ~ Karen
Hopefully no family members will look closely at this photo.
