Work in progress

September 19, 2014
Hi everyone,
I wanted to share my progress on ~ Square in a Square ~ hooked rug,
designed by Maggie Bonanomi.
A fun rug to hook and great way to use up leftover wool strips!
Maggie used the snip and tear method, I'm using a #9 cut.
I love the wonky look of Maggie's rug but I have a hard time hooking that way.
In fact I will probably take out a few loops in the light row down at the point 
because the wool is a bit narrower there. 

The weather here in Pa has been beautiful!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
xoxo Louise


  1. Great rug, wonderful colors, Louise! I, too, love that look but have trouble hooking it.
    Hugs to your pug :)

  2. This one is on my list too. Your rug is looking awesome Louise! I love the look of Maggie's but I can't hook like that either. Can't wait to see how yours comes out. Your wools are perfect. Lori

  3. Oh I love the design, looking forward to see more.Blessings Francine.

  4. Love this design * Beautiful hooking my friend!

  5. I like this design a lot! You've chosen some great wools to hook it with too!

  6. I'm glad to hear that you're hooking Maggie's design using your own style of wool strips. I think it's great that you know what you like! The colors you're using are wonderful.

  7. Like the simplicity of the design as well as your color choices.
