Why do they call it rug hooking when I'm not hooking a rug..
White, creams, taupes.....
Hooking on burlap.......
Not sure of the size yet, but it is to become a pillow.
Do you hook....
Years ago many women hooked their rugs to keep their floors warm.
Wool was not the only fibre used to hook with........ many used large hooks and old garments torn
into strips for hooking. Whatever worked.
I have hooked and designed many rugs.
I love this one... Stars!!!!
Hooked snowman pillows .....
I use 100% wool and then I felt it. This procedure is done by washing your wool then drying it in the
dryer. It comes out much thicker.......
Working on Down On the Farm
Here it is finished.
I hang these rugs.
I hook on my lap with a wide hoop as well I hook on a frame. My wool is cut into strips, (we call them strings) and then I put them into clear bags so I can see what I'm working with .I have a wool cutter.
I love this width . It is #8 or primitive width. So you use a larger hook.
My pillow that I am working on is hooked on a hoop.
That way I can watch some of my favourite TV programs.
It's not a hard form of art once you get your rythmn.
I have been hooking for 10 years. Oh how time flies.
It's not a craft for OLD LADIES!!!! Yet some my think so.
Well I hope I haven't bored you to death.....
Try your hand at it. You may grow to like it. Start saving those old 100% wool sweaters,old skirts, jackets.
They may come in handy some day!!
