The Return of the Rug

No, silly, not THAT kind of rug!  A latch hook rug!

Wild Wings, from Herrschners.  They have an incredible selection of kits and supplies for crafters, including some fantastic latch hook rugs that aren’t cheesy ridiculousities.  This lovely piece was my birthday present this year and I’m having a ball working it.  It’s huge!

My kid is tall, all six feet of him, and it nearly stretches to his knees!  I can’t wait til this beauty is done.

One of the things that impressed me is that the project comes in its own plastic zipper case, like one you’d buy a pillow or feather comforter in.  Each of the colors are in their own pouch, clearly marked with the colors.  The yarn is acrylic and very soft.  Makes me want to walk on it in bare feet.

The kits do not come with a latch hook; however, you can easily purchase one from Herrschners.  I, however, found my original one from 25 years ago, made by Brunswick in England.  I love it; it’s good quality and feels good in the hand.

I can’t wait to report my progress.  I’ve got about 2 inches done so far.  This will be a fun summer project, especially when it gets too warm to knit.
