Other Uses for Wool: Hooked Rugs with Yarn

Many, many years ago, I met Judy Taylor at the Puyallup Fair and purchased one of her Nantucket Rug Hooking kits.  I fell in love with this historical handcraft and the best part was being able to use my handspun wool yarn for more than just knitting and weaving.

I found this video today on YouTube featuring Judy.  It was probably made sometime in the 90’s, about the same time I purchased the kit from her.

I have also taken a class from her at Madrona Fiber Arts.  It’s great being able to learn from an artist that lives locally.  She lives out in Auburn, WA, about 20 miles from me.

So, go grab some tea, your spinning or knitting and take a watch for the next 28 minutes.  You just might want to start doing this wonderful craft as well.

Enjoy!
