Well, I've finally finished these two modern rya rugs. They measure 5"x7" (13cm x 18cm) each, and that doesn't sound very much bigger than my other ones, but it was! Three times bigger.
A sharp incline on the learning curve!
Working the extra width was enough to make my RSI return, so it was slower than a snail's pace. The bright white for some reason on the test showed every single stitch, not a good look, so I had to re-design in alternating rows, as well as use more strands of thread in the pile.
And as for working with black!!! Not again. I could only work it in full sun, and even then my brain tried to fall out my ears.
However, I'm very pleased with them, and more pleased that they're finished!
They're listed in my Etsy shop (here).
