|A close-up of Barb's sample|
Barb Gott of Gott Wool was our special guest. I missed the sign-up for the mini workshop she was teaching, but there were extra patterns so I got to participate. Yay! She was teaching about the bargello style. It's not my style, I'm a prim girl, but I'm up for learning new things so why not. She had gorgeous wool to purchase so I chose three. We could have used our own wool, but it was easier to buy the three value swatches for this project.

This was not the style of hooking I'm used to. There was a lot of counting and following of the pattern to do, and it was a lot like counted cross-stitch. It was kind of nerve-wracking as if you make one mistake counting, your whole pattern will be off. No pressure! : )

Barb was a great teacher and threw in a joke or two. Thanks Barb for a great mini workshop!
|All of the guild ladies hard at work. I think there were 45 of us there that day.|
I have a few more pictures from the guild meeting that I will share with you another day. You will not believe it! : )
