Trying a halo


Even though I am often angelic..... (OK, stop laughing now)  I am actually referring to another kind of halo.  My lastest rug project was not very well planned color-wise and I had hooked myself into a dilemma.  But as always, blog friends came to the rescue with suggestions.  

Lauren from Rugs and Pugs suggested I try a halo effect around the ladies.  I already had 2 rows hooked around and had enough wool to hook a third row and then I started hooking the remainder in a dark brown wool.  


I think it's going to work.  Thanks Lauren :)   I will hook a little more tomorrow night and see if that's enough.  I'm tempted to extend the border a little more with one highlight line but I'm going to wait before I dive in again without a bit more planning.   Unless something drastic happens this piece should be done by the weekend.  When it might get around to the binding is another story.  Lol.  The hookers dilemma --- loves to hook, hates to bind.

    Oh, you do have a halo but it may be just a bit tarnished at times :)
    Happy hooking.

  11. It looks wonderful with the halo. Yes, that is such a true statement, hating to bind. I just make myself now because I hate letting them stack up.
    It isn't as bad as it always seems and I find I even find it relaxing but I still have to fight myself ever single time.
