Sandy Brown might characterize hooking Winston as a learning experience. She wanted to master highlighting techniques while studying with Elizabeth Black and so enthusiastically accepted Elizabeth's suggestion of hooking a character dog. Elizabeth sketched the dog, dubbed Winston by her class, onto a piece of rug warp for Sandy, who says she then naively dyed "all the wrong values of wool" for the next class. "Fortunately, others who had studied with [Elizabeth] before knew enough to bring a better selection of wools and were generous in allowing me to purchase from them. The key...is gradation swatches so subtle in their gradients that hte shading [takes] care of itself. That [did the trick, as did] a few key colors such as pale gray with lots of lilac, tawny golds, and whites of at least three values."
