Just before Christmas I taught my friend Wendo how to hook – in about 5 minutes she was pulling loops and by the end of the weekend she had finished hooking and putting together her Christmas tree. On Saturday Wendo came for a visit with her mom and brought along her beautiful Lily rug – all hooked in roving that she usually uses for her needlefelting. The rug is gorgeous – the colours are rich and there is a glint to them that is lovely. Wendo left with 2 yards of linen – is she hooked??? Wendo is planning on being a vendor and a teacher at the OHCG annual in May in Kingston and will have not only her needlefelting but also rughooking kits using roving for sale. If you have never hooked with roving this will be a wonderful opportunity to get a small kit and try it.
And what have I been up to – not much! Did finish a hooked hat for my cousin Helen but turns out I think her head may be too big for it (that is another way of saying I MADE IT TOO SMALL!). Hats are fun to hook but when you are sewing them together and lining them they do tend to shrink up a bit. Oh well, back to the drawing board (or hooking frame).
