I just LOVED Lori Brechlin's post on the "non-perfect" hooker... That's me!! No matter how hard I try, I can't get my loops the same height...not even close...I have twists,turns, and carry-overs on every corner and curve...so please don't ever look on the back of my rugs...SHoCKInG! I used to get really wigged out trying to make every loop perfect..it took the fun out of hooking, but when I took a class in Ohio with Barb Carroll, she very proudly stated that she is not a hooker who strives for perfection....she just loves to hook and enjoys every piece of wool she pulls..it's supposed to be relaxing...not stressful. That changed my whole outlook on the craft.
I'll never have one of my rugs chosen for the annual edition of "Celebration" by Rug Hooking Magazine...or win a blue ribbon at Sauder....but I do so enjoy making my rugs..so rock on Lori....your rugs are beautiful....your loops unique....I'm with you!
