original rugs and wall hangings combining hooking and braiding

20th Anniversary Rug

26”x37”, #6-cut hand-dyed and as-is wool for the hooking, gold sparkle fabric for the hooked rings on rug warp, and as-is wool for the braid.  Designed, hooked, and braided by Kris McDermet, Dummerston, Vermont, 2004. 

Stewart and I met in Boston at 84 St. Stephens Street and lived here before moving to Vermont.  We love Christmas in the city and always have a tree in this window.  The rug sits in front of a Victorian fireplace with blue tiles that match the blue in the braid.  The gold sparkle fabric was hooked in the double wedding ring pattern with jewels on top.  The granny squares are butted from the black center row.
