Lion Rug

I bought this pattern when I was down in Missouri last February. This is an adaptation from an antique rug that I was going to draw out myself, but Rhonda Manley had it already drawn out so I bought it. I started it the last week in October and am almost done. It's on Monks cloth and I've been hooking it mostly in an 8.5 cut. It's been a struggle with the Monks and the larger cut for me. My wrist hurts after hooking which has never happened before. I've been trying to hook it to look like an old rug with subtle colors and chunks of the background in a slightly off color from the rest of the background. I can already see one flower I might change. But other than that, I like it!
