I am using an "N" hook and Lion Brand Cotton Thick & Quick in two colors of Fern Green and Poppy Red. This rug will be used in my office at the door entry. The colors are not the colors of the office but I lack a rug in this area and it needs one. So, since I did not add any backing to keep it from sliding I will use it on a carpeted area. It is kind of nice and a bit Christmasy in color. I think it i a nice contrast of colors.
I should mention that this yarn is quite heavy and does stress the hands a lot, so it will be slow going for this item as my hands tired easily these days. Also, we are in the throws of summer heat and this is heavy yarn so that also puts it on the back burner.
