:)) Oh, this is hardly the first or last time I will be a nutter.

I printed on poplin since that is what I had free in my stash. I made the image from the original latch hook chart, so it still has the faint grid from that. :yes:

That’s going to be a gorgeous FK carpet!

Suggestion from experience tho: Works more easily on thinnest printer cloth (batiste or lawn). I see wee squares….do you have silk gauze on top of the poplin?

The French knots are so lush and pretty! It’s going to be fun to watch it “grow"!

:)) Here I was thinking I was being a slacker lately.

I try to work a little each day on something, allowing myself time off to socialize and be lazy. :yes:

Oh wow, this will be great! I agree about the close-up choppy qualities of curves in needlepoint, especially on such a clean, modern design. French knots will be perfect!

So, I have to ask… HOW do you have so much time for all these projects and get things done so quickly with the professional, realistic quality you’re known for?! I’m beginning to think you either have elves in your workshop or a time freezing machine. :)

a Clean Copy for your proposed French knot area rug, which I’m sure will be even lovelier than the original!

:)) Yes, he’s usually plopped on the couch next to me when I stitch, which is good until he sees STRING!!!! |-|

Colonial knots are a thought…I’ll do a test swatch to see if I like the texture. I know I don’t care for them mixed with French knots in the same project, but on their own might be ok.

Jasper, keep on supervising. This cannot be done without your help.

I loved this rug the first time you did it, and the French knots will supercharge that feeling, I’m sure! And Jasper - he’s got to be one of the prettiest kitties I’ve ever seen. A very close second to the cat my aunt had when I grew up. Her name was Gypsy Rose and she was a stunner! Still miss her…

I know it will be wonderful!

You might try colonial knots. It will still look like French knots, but since they are a little larger it will go little faster.

Your tribal foxes rug has a Navajo sensibility to it, and is Beautifully Done.

Thanks so much! :>>

I’m still pretty sure this will end up in Watson Mill. It’s a relatively small rug, and I find stitching relaxing. I have been wanting to work on the Persian, so I did make a point to complete the stitching on this one now. :yes:
