New Christmas Project

I am turning to work on my Santa 2010, Kriss Kringle. I have sketched him on the linen foundation and selected my wools. I am going to be using my Norfolk Family of wools, those created from my blue-purple dye (wool pack on the top of this pile). I think I am going to use a 4-cut for this one because I want to get some detail in the eyes and in the fir. It could easily be hooked in a 6-cut too. It will measure 13 1/2 inches by 16 1/2 inches.

I am going to keep track of how I hook this piece step-by-step, and if I can arrange it, I am considering offering this pattern and instructions as an online VIP rug hooking course in September or October. So watch for that.

Here is a list of the wools I will be selecting from:

Norfolk Lavender 110
Fincastle Brown 141
Wilde Wood 117
Jack Horner Plum 111
Rosehip 45
Midnight Heath 66
Pink Iris 34
Chesterfield 52
Twinkle Periwinkle 56
Gray Lichen 50
Shades of Dusk 23
Gossamer Gray 31
