A few weeks back you were given a glimpse of the crochet works under task... I am calling these the You-kneed U-kneek rugs.. three of them one for each of my sibs. The Maestro is getting a cushion cover with lots of nobbles and varied stitching, different weight wools and such to give her 'seeing fingers' something to linger over.
The first one is the heaviest, using various batches of natural coloured wool, some from Australian Merino and the rest from Scottish fleeces (mother had contacts!) This was the roughest, also, carrying lots of burrs and full of lanolin. It's "blokey" and therefor will be Mac3's pressy; it is being called SPRING FIELDS, as it reminds me of freshly ploughed earth.
The second one is being called SUMMER RAIN, and will be Mac2's. It may be worth explaining that Mac3 was born at the end of spring; Mac2 was born in the summer. You may guess the others!
Each of the rugs had little insets around which I worked - these were found among the wool; mother had made 'swatches' for testing and I wanted to share them round. The most striking was this rondel weave which has been used for Mac1's pressy. It is being called WINTERSUN.
Now all I have to do is make one for myself!!! How are all your preps going???
