It’s that time again – Spring is just around the corner and it’s Hook-a-Month time. My fourth Hook-a-Month project is a dazzler of a primitive rug. If you aren’t familiar with the hook-a-month concept, it’s all about storage space, finding the time to hook a large rug, and budgeting for a beautiful rug (with a little help from me.)
Do you ever hesitate to order a large rug kit because it seems like you’ll never get it done? Or, you wonder where you would store all that wool while you work on the rug, and if you get the wool cut, will the strips be so wrinkled by the time you get to the end, they will be harder to work with? Or, maybe it just doesn’t fit into your budget to buy a large kit? The hook-a-month projects provide the solution to those problems!
This Hook-a-Month rug is a wonderful, abstract, antique-designed rug, circa early 1900s. Polly Minick shared this rug on her blog recently, and she gave me permission to offer it to you for this new project. She asked that I make a few subtle changes, which I did; nothing to alter the design very much — I tweaked the colors and I simplified some of the tighter lines into a bit wider sections. I do not know for sure how large the original rug was, but the Hook-a-Month rug measures 24 x 24 inches.
I send kit shipments out over 4 months time, in an effort to help your budget and make the project more fun. You will find all the details and pricing on my website: Check out Hook-a-Month Spring 2010.
This project is open now – there are a limited number of kits and when they are gone, that’s it. Shipping begins mid-March and once a month through June when the last hook-a-month wool will get shipped to the participants. If you love this rug and want to participate, sign up and pay your first installment now. There are several options from which you can choose regarding payment and kit.
I am off to shovel my latest installment — it’s in the driveway, it’s white, it’s deep, and very cold. Yeah – I want Spring cuz you don’t have to shovel rain!
