Two friends and I drove to Danville, IN, for the Woolkeeper's Hook In, a first for us. 685 miles in two days but so worth it. It's amazing to go almost 350 miles from home and know so many people :) Excellent vendors. Wool heaven. Here are a few of the vendor booths.
I love the name of this rug ~ El Stinko. There was even a poem to go with it :)

I took a fun class with Elinor Barrett of Black Sheep Wool Designs, called "start with a heart". There were many choices of hearts and templates to work with and from there we designed a "Magdalena style" rug. Here is what I came up with. I think it has the Ernestine seal of approval.
A heart hooked by
Elinor. I just love this! Elinor let me know this was hooked by Nola Heidbreder. Sorry, Nola.
I really was pretty good. I bought some wool (how could I not?) and a couple patterns. I will add them to my ever growing pattern stash.
A picture of Ernestine today ~ just because she is so darn cute.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
