First Rug: Lorill Harding
Lorill’s Rug, 24" x 36", approximately 1/2" strips of used T-shirt material on monk’s cloth. Designed and hooked by Lorill Harding, 2015.
This wonderful rug is not the rug that Lorill Harding first set out to hook once she had learned to hook. Her first plan was to hook a 30" x 51" rug to replace a mat by the entrance to her kitchen. It was made in three shades of blue, created by loops of varying heights; the motifs were floral, but quite indistinct. She drew out the general shapes of the flowers, and quickly Lorill realized that the vague shapes were not working. So she researched, and revised her plans.
