A circle rug, that is!!! Saundra of the Woodland Junction blog posted a variety of circle rugs on her March 22 post, along with an invitation to join her as she de-worms! After a couple of emails with Saundra, I remembered that I had drawn one last year so I took Saundra up on her invitation!! Last night, instead of going to bed, this little mat held me captive in my hooking room!! I made a lot of progress but it requires a lot of thought and isn't really very random. There are various cuts ~ 8, 8.5, 9 & 9.5 and I decided to hook each circle in the same color way sort of !

NED ~ finally finished hooking this boy last night! There were only a few inches of border over the NED to fill in ~ it was a matter of setting down and doing it. The size is 20" x 35" and done in mostly a 9.5 cut with a 10 cut in the border! It was started at the Woolley Fox Last fall and one of my new favorites!!

If you have a worm pile, why don't you hook along with us and post your pix or send them to one of us to post! My worm basket is not all that big since I cut as I go ~ but they still add up, don't they?

Happy Spring!!!

Love what you're doing and love Ned. Just might have to buy that pattern one day. Even tho I am using worms for the geometric as well as the circle rug, I swear I don't see much reduction.

Look at you . . . 2 posts in 2 days!
I love circles . . maybe I should just pull out the circle rug I have started and finish it, but it might be more fun to begin anew! :-)
Ned turned out wonderfully!

Wow Alice! Would you look at that Ned! I enjoyed clicking on the photo to make it bigger! Love all the textures and is that ribbon around Ned's neck? Very neat rug!! Have fun with the circle rug... my favorite thing to hook!

Hi Cathy ! That is dyed handspan yarn that was in my stash ~ I thought it gave him a little spark!!!

I started my deworming on circles but mine were with fine worms. Yours look nice and fat and it should go real fast. They are my favorite thing to hook too.

It's nice to see that the deworming trend is spreading in the hooking world.

Ned is very handsome and I clicked on him too to see the details.

I bought a copy of the Country Sampler that your home was featured in. Wow, your home is so warm and inviting. Thanks for the tour.

How fun is that worm circle project! I started one with 'pennies' a couple years ago with left over worms - I think I need to get it out again. I forgot all about it until I read your post.
Ned is so cute!

You are all onto something with that circle rug!! What a great idea and a fun thing for a group to do. I will check out the challenge later. And what a great break from Dear Edith.
As to Ned, I agree with Cathy - that homespun around his neck is that little bit of "poison" that makes it so so special. Nicely done!!
