I finally finished my anniversary rug..yippee!! I edged it with 100% wool yarn in a black brown, pressed it and it's ready to hang. I'm always anxious to move on to the next project, even though I hook rather slowly. I hooked the entire rug in a 9 cut. And I must say...I really really love the reversible charcoal wool. The different shades of the brown/black make your rug look so antique. This was such a fun rug to hook..easy!
