#12 - 161. Latch Hook Skull
What drew me to this one, is a memory. My aunt (now deceased) taught me how to do latch hook when I was a young girl. I still have a partially done rose project that she gave me. This makes me want to finish it and add it to the collection of finished ones. For this skull piece, I like that Noah took an existing kit, rearranged the colors and pattern, so he could make this. I like the use of monotone colors for the shading and highlights. The colors remind me of coffee, tea, tobacco, orange juice, spices, tar and dirt that might be ground into a well used rug. I wonder if you could dye yarn with such substances.
I understand that he did this in one day, which I know from experience is really rough on your hands. Especially the knuckles which can drag across the rough canvas as you latch hook the yarn. I know that the process of latch hooking is time consuming and rather precise, so I commend him for doing such a detailed project using latch hook.
