I hooked this on burlap using mostly over dyed wool from used garments. I admire very much Karen Kahle and her palette is very nice. I purchased two of her books about dyeing, Dusty Little Dye Book and Vintage Colors Dye Book. I dyed most of the background wool from a used white wool skirt my sister and brother-in-law gave me as part of my birthday gifts this summer. I dyed most of the green border wool and all of the wool yarn for the binding using one of KK's recipes called Oyster. I have a Fraser 500 cutter and used a #8 cut. I like variety in my strip width so I move the guide arm out sometimes and get a wider strip. I'll even use unevenly cut strips for variety. I've recently joined other Hookers at London Wul once a month to enjoy their camaraderie and valuable advice and input.
Happy Day One and All
