Well, I'm finished with the hooking anyway. I need to to give this a good steaming before I put the piping on. I hook on the tight side -- always have -- but I must have watched to many British mysteries while hooking this one. At any rate, I am pleased with how my Whale of a Tale turned out. I changed Jonah's coat -- ripped out the antique paisley and hooked in a dark fushia, which unfortunately reads red in my photo. That was the color I had planned on using, long before the class started. But it looked too bright to me then and I switched it to the paisley. Now I've switched it back. Just goes to show -- often an initial impulse is the way to go.
What do you think?
