Steamed. Pardon the kitchen mess. I had to clear the center island. Today's task: binding. That's 40 feet of hand stitching because I'm applying twill tape and you go around twice, once to attach and once to stitch down the other side. There's going to be music and sanity breaks because I have to tell you, binding isn't my favorite task. 🙃😕😳 Note: I am sharing images of this very special project with the fiber art community because we are a community and it's fun and educational to share. It may go without saying to 99 percent of you, but the design is mine and legally belongs to Parris House Wool Works. It may not be reproduced. In this case, this rug will not be made again by me nor the pattern sold as it is OOAK to my client, whose brainchild it is and with whom I worked collaboratively to design it, right down to his preferences on the orientation of the pineapples and specific hand dyed yellows and greens. We will be offering the colors, recipes I created for this rug, in our hand dyed wool color palette, though. #rughooking #rughookerofinstagram #fiberart #fiberartistsofinstagram #bindingrugs #rugbinding ...

Fun fact. A 4 foot by 6 foot rug hooked in a size 6 has approximately 36 loops per square inch, or over 124,000 loops in the whole rug. Much of the rug I just finished was hooked in size 5, but I'll leave it at this. #rughookersofinstagram #rughooking #iprobablyshouldntthinkaboutit ... See MoreSee Less
