I'm so excited

No...not 'cuz it's Hallowe'en. This is probably one of my least favorite events of the year.

So, instead of thinking about that, I've embarked on a new rug. I drew it out on Thursday but I just started hooking yesterday. Unfortunately, there were a lot of things going on yesterday and I didn't get to hook nearly as much as I wanted to do. I have had this design in mind for a while - kind of fixated on the bass clef. And I wanted a colorful background. Tentatively it's called "Bass Lines". But here's a preview of what I mean.

And it's even better closer up:

I love the wavy hit and miss. Well, I love hit and miss anyway. Has anybody noticed that? This time, I am even trying harder not to control the color placement and that is so-o hard to do. And I am trying to actually use up the 'worms' leftover from other projects. I would like to not cut any new strips. I think that's a pretty realistic goal as I have a container full of the things. Since I plan to give this to DS, I'd like to keep most of the pastels out. A few for balance and then concentrate on the 'manly' palette. So, you can see I've already established some control already. Oh, well. I'll just have to keep trying, won't I?

Enough typing...I'm off to hook again.
