Hooked by Kris Miller
This is another rug that was so much fun to hook. I believe it was the first rug I had ever hooked a lot of letters or script. Since the plaid background has a teeny reddish purple line in it, I hooked the letters in similar colors. I mixed up the colors just a bit so it gave variety and interest to the whole rug. Just like the Midnight Clear rug, I used a taupe/cream plaid for the ground so it looks like dirty snow. I gave the snowman a red ware plate and cup but I know some people have hooked the plate like a cookie instead, and I think that is a cute idea.
What makes me smile is the cute little chin on the snowman...how many snowmen actually have a chin??? Charming!!!
Oops! If you look closely enough, you will see I haven't done a binding on this rug yet. I hooked this years ago and couldn't decide on how to finish the edges. I think I will crochet around the edges with matching wool strips and call it good. A perfect "cold weather" project to do before the end of the year!
