How about those Celts....whoo hoo! Many years ago, I shared season tickets to the Celtics when Larry Bird and company were playing and loved every minute of it. Over the years, I have to admit, I kind of lost interest........but it was SO fun to have a team to root for again! What I like the best about this team...is that they are a team that plays in the best interest of the team.
Ok....back to hooking. I can already see glimmers of how dangerous this could become. Over the years, I have slowly been decorating my house in what is called a primitive style and hooked rugs fit in nicely.
Usually if I want to add something to my home, if it is something that I could make, I try to find a class to learn how. Typically I have found that the cost of the class and materials will cost the same as the finished product and the nice thing about doing it this way, is a skill is learned.
This is a brand new world of fiber for me........the array of colors in some of the dyed wools I have seen are absolutely beautiful....and then there are these fantastic wooden hooking tools. I can see how dangerous they could be......right up there with all of those beautiful spindles that I have....except these I think I might use more.
There has been a little knitting here as well. Over the weekend, I worked diligently on my Brambler scarf while we took a drive in the country...wait, I live in the country. Well, you know what I mean....it was a brambling kind of drive, which was perfect for working on this scarf.
I really could take it off the needles now and block it, but I think this one is going to be twice the recommended length so that it can be wrapped a few times. The yarn has such a pretty drape to it with all of the silk in it....this time I think longer will be better :).
