Hours of hooking
Sitting in my favorite spot
Here’s a great tip that I got from Abby Vakay a few years
ago when I had her as a rug hooking teacher.
When you are working on a certain area of your rug…
say, for me, the tree rings….pin smaller pieces of those
colors on a pin, then you have them at the ready as you
go from one color to the next.
This also works well if you are shading an area, put all
of those related colors together….that way you’re not
constantly having to dig through your pile of wool for the entire
rug to find what you want.
