I am almost finished a rug I began about a year ago. This morning, listening to Sunday Morning on CBC, I was working on the border. This is one of my favourite parts of the rug because it requires no thinking, and the rhythmic pulling of loops in colours I love allows me to enjoy the best radio of the week (this morning a UofT professor talking about good teaching and a great listen into yodelling) and even slip into a meditative state. But since I started at 9.am., I was very aware of the time it took me to hook just half the border of one side–1.5 hours! We rug hookers do not often calculate the hours we spend on a piece–and for good reason! I will post the finished rug later this week after several more hours work on the border but before I begin whipping!
