I got "hooked" on another craft this past summer--rug hooking. I hadn't really seen many of these in person, but came across some kits at a fiber festival and picked up a kit. Little did I know that my good friend had a great friend who designs her own rugs. I learned from the best!!! I finished up my pumpkin kit and vowed to only ever have one rug on the frame at a time (to avoid the UFO situation I got into in knitting). I have a strawberry-themed rug in the midst of being hooked now. I'm hooking it with yarn instead of felted wool. Thought I give it a try to understand the differences. T was nice enough to let me borrow one of her frames for a few months (okay, maybe a little longer than a few). I broke down and found one on eBay last week. I was so happy when it arrived! I can't wait to hook the rest of the strawberry rug and then go shopping at a fiber fair for another one or two. I really want to hook a Christmas one since I'll have a spring and fall one.
