Winding and binding....

During our visit to Halcyon Yarns in Bath, Maine I picked up a skein of Victorian two ply wool in a nice Navy to finish off Jack. I sat down Saturday afternoon to wind my yarn....

I was winding and....



 
Winding.....


 
And winding.

 

It took me an hour to wind this yarn.
It is a thinner gauge, but I love the way it looks. So then it was time to bind.
 
Jack all pinned and ready...


I was binding....
 
And binding.....
 
 
And binding.



It took roughly seven hours of work to bind this baby. Because the gauge was small it took more to cover. I did double my strands in my needle.

I am so excited to have my first major rug project complete!!!  Now I just need to label it and add a hanger sleeve across the back.

Here is Jack!
 
 
 
I am very pleased!!
 
Haulin' apples ---- loving all things Autumn
 
 
 
Keep on Stitching and Hooking.

What a wonderful finish! I love it and I really liked seeing how you did it, as well! I love apple harvest season ~ we have such great apples in Michigan that I eat way too many of them. Oh, those and cinnamon donuts and cider. Yummmmm....
