Salt Lake Hookers

We were so tickled to see Nancy's finished rug on Wednesday. The borders make this rug much larger - and add so much more interest to the design. She used a very limited color pallette that worked perfectly for this project!

I especially liked the way she hooked the first border border to include some picot-type lines with the black wool.

Her next project was inspired by a trip through the cosmetics department at Macy's where she saw this tote bag. She fell in love with the playfulness of the design, as well as the riot of color and the way each motif was outlined in black to make it pop.

She drew her own pattern and just started pulling the first few loops while we were there. It's going to be a fun one to watch!

Myra brought her hooked runner all finished and it's a BIG one - at least six feet long I think! Her distribution of color was perfect which could have been very difficult on a project this size!

And Yvonne is making progress on her Emma Lou pattern - it is a square pattern which is kind of unusual for a rug - it will be 5' x 5' when she's done with it.

I love all of these projects you share with us. Almost makes me want to start hooking--but I do NOT need another hobby! : )

Great rugs! I can't imagine hooking a 5' x 5' rug. I don't think in my lifetime it will happen.
Hugs :)
