1999 'Waiting for You'; design by Pearl McGown — hooked by Laura w.Pierce


This little pattern was on the guild white elephant table and I couldn't resist.   It is an old burlap pattern designed by Pearl McGown.   I had so much fun making white cap waves!   The sky blue is made with recycled wool married in a salty solution.   This was my dye method at the time and it was more or less successful.   I have often thought about replacing it with a nice dipped sky blue, but it has it's own charm.   The rope frame was another challenge I struggled with until a friend showed me someone else's rug rope.   Each link is layered with values and can be tedious.   I would recommend doing a couple of links every hooking session to get it done.
