I just finished up this little oval rug - the free pattern from a recent issue of Rug Hooking Magazine. The first time I ever whipped the edges of a rug with curved edges I got tons of ripples that were nearly impossible to get out. Since then I always sew my twill tape around the outside before I begin hooking and I've never had that problem again - it stabilizes the curves and lays nice and flat!
And I started this scrappy one trying to use up some of my worms. Here's a sneak peek.
