Hooked Project

My first ever totally hooked with 100% wool yarn rug hooking project. It was quite liberating to give myself permission to hook with yarn. A nice small project with a finished size of 11.25"x11.25". The pattern is by Lucy Richard for London-Wul Fibre Arts. There is also a kit available and other projects.

Our first meeting at Reads since early December was great. Despite the extreme cold 4 of us showed up. Thanks Deina and Turtle Purl for the sample from the trunk show that took place at Cricket Cove. Speaking of Cricket Cove they are planning a Knit In at The Algonquin on March 14th. If you're luckier them me and aren't working you may want to check that out.
We will be meeting at Reads in Riverview the following next two Wednesday evenings at 6pm. That is on February 18th and 25th.
The following projects were completed by Nathalie. Love the little dog sweater and the colours in the hat and cowl set are fabulous.

It has been a while. I am still battling hyperthyroid. As a matter of fact I am going to be having another radioactive iodine scan this week.

I have been knitting hats to accommodate my smaller  head as I had all my long hair cut off.

From left to right Drops Fjord Rose in Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Willow's Winter Warmer Hat done in Berroco Flicker, Sirdar Tweedie Chunky 9069 and, The Journey Hat in Berroco Vintage.

I've been obsessing about rug hooking frames and just placed an order for the Searsport whole package deal, yeah!

Well I'm off to the hospital.
