Celtic Love Knot Rug, 46" diameter
As with all of my hand-hooked designs, this rug is hooked on linen, in any color combination. If you have specific colors in mind that you would like me to match, you can mail me examples of the colors (fabric swatches, paint chips from the hardware store, etc). Email me for more information.
This rug can be ordered with a poem by Mark Ford tracing through one of the ribbons:
"The lover lives in a small world where love is the
Why tell him life is not as good as it could be?
Heartbreak is the only tender hold we have on innocence.
And if he should never come to the realization
That the universe is heartless
Is that a loss?
We boast of knowing the facts of life
But is it not we who have lost them?
The universe would continue to hiss and clank
Should love leave it
But it is a hopeless task
To make him believe it.
I do not promise to love forever
(Unless man does live forever)
But I do promise to love you as long as I am."
