Wool in the summer? Yes, please if you are hooker! I have been steadily working on my snow peeps rug since I last blogged about it here. Each loop is hand pulled by me so when I have a chunk of time and my stamping to do list is manageable, I get to hookin’! Here is my progress since the last post:
and a close up of all those loops…one peeps had to have a purple hat of course!
But I set aside the snowpeeps and ventured to Spry Whimsy Fiber Arts in Stoughton to find binding yarn for the Halloween rug here…
My plan is to whip stitch the burlap edge to finish the rug. I hope to make progress this weekend while Mom can help me get started. I am determined to finish for the Halloween season this year, which I do believe may mark 5 years since I started this rug!
Ingrid from Spry Whimsy was gracious enough to show me around her shop and share what she and her husband, Peter, create there. Ingrid is a spinner transforming wool into yarns and teaching others how to spin. Peter is a felter creating usable and wearable art and shares in classes as well.
A few photos that I took…that’s Ingrid next to her Super Woman of Wool tshirt…
They host a fiber lovers circle on Wednesday evenings that she said I am welcome to join even though I would be the first hooker. Sounds like fun amongst other fiber lovers, let’s go! I look forward to learning more about the fibers at Spry Whimsy Fiber Arts and how I can incorporate them in my rugs.
Until the next hooking installment,
Super Awesome Hooker Shirley
