...Rug Hooking 101...


I really, really wanted to call this post "Hooking on Sunday"but manners and fine upbringing prevented me from doing so...So secretly I'll call it that!! Anyway, I dedicated my entire afternoon to trying to master hooking...rug hooking,that is...It's not very hard to learn in that getting the strips of wool through the burlap is not a chore. I have to say though I'm not too fond of the burlap and I'll probably get linen next time. I do need to practice my hooking design too because it looks a little sloppy this time...It's still very fun and very relaxing despite these little hang-ups of mine... Unfortunately, I'm starting to crave wool now like I crave fabric. There are so many pretty shades out there and so little time...oh no!!!
Take Care,
Tina

HI TINA..I AM STARTING MY "HOOKING" JOURNEY TOO.. HOOKING FRIENDS TELL ME TO RELAX AND NOT WORRY OVER EVERY LITTLE LOOP, AND SO I TRY TO WORRY LESS AND JUST ENJOY THE ADVENTURE.. I LOVE AND ADORE HOOKED RUGS AND WALL HANGINGS AND LIKE YOU, I TOO LOVE ALL THE BEAUTIFUL OVERDYED WOOLS THE COLORS ALONE MAKE ME LONG TO HAVE EVERY ONE IN EVERY COLOR..... OH GOODNESS ~~..THANK YOU FOR SHARING...B

I have hit the rug hooking hard in the last year. But I will say that I too crave wool and have begun storing my stash everywhere, It is almost like an addition.. So happy wool hunting! My next adventure in hooking is over dyeing the wool. I have also bought a used frazier wool cutter and can't wait to use it. It is in the mail right now!! I love rug hooking!1
