Working with colorful wool on a dismal day

DSCF1001If it is going to be drizzly all day, at least I can have colors in my hands! And today I am preparing for a class, and putting together wool packets for everyone. I am working out in my garden studio where I keep all of my wool.

DSCF1010This is a close up of Summer Basket, and I am finding colors for the bold outline in the flowers.

DSCF1004I typically use many colors in my outlines, so that they look surprising, giving the piece a more time-worn look.

DSCF1016I think that class time should be fun and I do everything ahead of time to try to make class a success for each person. I have been working several weeks already, and have almost 2 months to go before I ship everything out.

DSCF1018I get excited myself when I organize wool, as I get to kind of re-live hooking each design, enjoying the play of color that seems to come like magic. I love the way the wools look together.

  2. Thank you Karen for an inspirational day. I haven’t hooked since the rug show here in Vermont since November and need to start a new project. I might just start the bee pillow pattern with soft spring colors.
