Wonderful article Sharon. I don´t understand how i missed this article until now. How lucky you are to hare found the old hooked rugs from your childhood. And the story about your beautiful coat being used in the rugs is so touching. Lovey dubby

I have never hooked rugs the way you did, but I helped my parents start hooking Smyrna rugs which is done with a big crochetting hook. My mother also made some pictures and pillowcases with a small hook and very fine yarn. She and her older sister made many a beautiful thing during their lifetime.

When I was younger I made a big picture with Aladin Needle (Hook) and wool yarn on canvas showing an island being born when there was an undersea volcanic eruption south of Iceland around 1970.

Did you start a new rug this winter? I suppose the hardest work is cutting the wool. Have you tried cutting it with a patchwork cutter and ruler?
And again thank you so much Thumbs up Thumbs up and happy Easter.
