new wool from Making A Lather

I still love rug hooking, but haven't been able to sit for very long at a time to actually hook. But, if we can't do, we shop. Yep, I bought more wool.

It is bigger than most of my rugs, but, it seemed to go very quickly. I didn't buy any wool for this rug, I was able to use what I already had on hand. The blues were a scrappy mix of dark blues.


I dyed the yarn for whipping the edges my self. I ordered 2 colors of blue dye because I wasn't sure which one I would want and I used them ...

color from Making A Lather

I worked on adding purple 2 inch squares to my Tokoyo subway quilt.It isn't very exciting in photos.
I needed 8 blocks with purple. Here is where I started this quilt






And just like salsa and chips, it never comes out even. I have quite a few 2 inch squares leftover.
I dyed some wool for friends at hooking guild. I am going to add these to my etsy shop as well.
I love dyeing and the pretty colors
