Working the hair

So hurray!  I finished the hat.  Moved on to the side of the face with the ear and the hair. I am hooking the hair with Butterfield 122 (8-value pack and texture pack).

It was very difficult to get the side of the face correct in terms of shadow and distinction.  I rehooked the area about six times, and the hair twice.  So I have been working on this small area of the rug all week.  The good news is that I will take what a learned on this side of the face and apply it to the left.  Maybe I won't have to rehook the left side so many times!  We can only hope.

Sorry for the inferior photo, but my camera ran out of battery.  So I had to use my phone camera.
