Member Spotlight - First Rug - Michelle Carey


The Wave, 20"x30" Designed and hooked by Michelle Carey

After decades of being a maker including other textile arts‎, last summer the urge to hook suddenly happened. So I picked up some burlap and a hook, browsed some hooking books and came across one of Deanne Fitzpatrick's books. I really liked the lines of one of the rugs in the book so started sketching similar lines on the burlap.

 

Now I am the kind of person who jumps in feet first so figured why shouldn't my first rug be 20 x 30"! As a weaver I have a great wool yarn stash and did not want to invest in a cutter unless I was going to go all out and just hook. I am delighted to say that after watching Judy's video on youtube for technique, the worsted weight wool yarn gives‎ a wonderful finished surface - especially after steaming. I used Briggs & Little and MacAuslands worsted weight wool yarn (all from Atlantic Canada which is where I live) for the hooking and the whipped edge.

 

I learned so much doing this rug and when I look closely‎, I can see the earlier section vs the improved areas. Overall am very pleased with the finished piece. Because of this new obsession, I have met new friends.... hookers really like to work together! This rug now resides in our cottage which is filled with things made by me:-)

Do you have a first rug (and more rugs) you would like to share with the group? Email me! You just might provide the inspiration to a newbie rug hooker. You can say as much or as little as you'd like, and include as many pictures as you like. Every rug has a story, and we love to hear all about them!
