I choose this pattern because it looked like it would be fun to hook. It was. No class was required, no wool had to be purchased, I used what I had and I hooked a great deal of it at a hook-in in Kennebunkport, Maine while talking, laughing and drinking in my PJ’s.
About the artist:
I started hooking in 2002 with Jackye Hansen, the Queen of Waldoboro. Predictably my first rug was a small Waldoboro rug. It took me a year. Since then, I have hooked about 60 items, including a couple bags and pillows. I have designed my own patterns and hooked patterns that other people have drawn. My favorite rug hooking school has always been Green Mountain and I’ve been lucky enough to take lessons from 25+ teachers. The best part of rug hooking is the people you meet. I have made friends all over the States, plus England, Scotland, Japan and Australia.
