ROOSTER RUG PROGRESS ~ ~ ~

Yesterday afternoon, before we left the lake, I got to hook for about three hours!!  A perfect afternoon for me!  I finished the body of the left rooster and started filling in over the wing and head of the right one.  Even though these guys are dark ~ they're looking pretty colorful to me!!  Stay tuned!
Hopefully, I can squeeze in some hooking time on this rainy drizzly day!  For once, I have nothing looming large in my schedule ~ just day to day chores ~ it feels GREAT!!!!! 

I've noticed that I have a couple of new followers ~ I appreciate each one of you that stop by to check in and love it when you take the time to comment ~ thank you and come back soon!!

Alice,

Thanks for sharing the rooster rug. What are you planning for the background?

A loyal fan from Florida!

Dear Loyal Fan aka Trisha!! The upper left corner is kind of dark in the photo but you can kind of see where I'm headed. It's a variety of neutrals ~ 4 or 5 ~ with colored strips from the strip basket hooked in on the lines. I'll do those in a narrow cut just to give it some pop of color and the background will be hooked in a 9.5 cut. Actually, a lot of the roosters is a 9.5 ~ you can cover a lot of ground pretty quick with that wide cut. I did cut a couple of strips in a 10 but that was a bit too wide ~ even for me!!

Lucky you for the hooking hours - I am so jealous. I only seem to be able to squeeze in minutes here and there.
The knitting goes well because of the car time, but the hooking - not so much. I clicked on your fine roosters and blew them up for a good look. They are very handsome and the colour shows up on the larger pics. Looking forward to seeing them done. Good luck during the drizzle.

Gorgeous roosters Alice! I love the darks..... and rooster rugs are always a favorite of mine. I did one and put it on the floor in the kitchen (and now wish I hadn't)... it's really taken a beating. You inspire me to give another one a try...
