Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Like another hole in my head
That's how much I need a new project. But this project I'm wanting to embark upon has nothing to do with knitting. I know, why do you care then? You probably don't but I'm gonna post it anyway.
From Claudia's blog I found myself at Elaine/Urbanspinner. The last post up was one on punch needle work, but it led me to rug hooking. So I followed some links and I'm now completely enthralled in the idea.
I want to be a hooker.
I want to hook my own rug, chairpad, or pillow.
Check it out. Its not necessarily a cheap hobby but it greatly interests me. enough so much that I won't be getting more yarn for the time being (I think have enough to finish my xmas presents). I'm saving up for a beginners hooking kit. Well, if the plan works, you know how seductive yarn can be.
Speaking of seductive yarn, I inspired some dying over at Roxi's with my pink and olive yarn. She comes up with some great colorways. Anyway, here's the yarn from that roving of mine.
I also bought some roving a little ways back, on ebay, based on the color alone as the seller didn't know what breed it was. I don't think I mentioned it here because I was a little disappointed when it arrived as it felt scratchy. I was thinking what the hell am I gonna' knit out of that. Now I know it would make gorgeous rug yarn.
Can you tell I'm getting excited at the idea?
Do you want to be a hooker too?
