9 1/2 more hours

I have been hooking the Satu piece mainly on the weekends when I have a bit more time.  I have counted up another 9 1/2 hours which is putting the overall time into the rug at 44 hours now.  I am finding that color coding the value zones is helping immensely.  Why didn't I think of this earlier?  I am never lost in my pattern as I have been so many times before when hooking previous large rugs.  I have done very little reverse hooking at this point in the project.  I think I just need to get more of Satu hooked before I know what, if anything, I want to alter.  Whether a color or value is wrong will depend on the overall piece.  It is just too big, and I have hooked too little to know yet.
