Duncan One

Duncan One was inspired by Eric Sandberg’s beautiful rug.  It was a learning rug for me — I was a relatively new hooker at the time, which shows (I think) in the somewhat rigid checkerboard arrangements.  But I was learning about contrast, gaining confidence, and I indulged my passion for orange.  I love my first Duncan.  One must ask:  as a novice hooker, how in the world did I already have so many worms?
