I did manage to pull off hooking a small rug over the past week. I am giving it to a coworker here in New York this week. I had been trying to decide what to bring her and finally landed on making a rug while in New Jersey a couple of weeks ago. The pattern is by Cactus Needle, available on Nola's website. Nola drew it for me and helped pull the wool a week ago Saturday. I dragged it with me to Boston last week thinking I would finish it on the road, but no such luck. After a marathon hooking session Friday night followed by a marathon binding session Saturday night, it was done. I think it's the fastest I have ever finished anything! I love the pattern - I just may have to do another one for me!
It's a foggy, dreary night in New York. I think the weather is supposed to be clearer but colder the next few days. Here's the view from my apartment tonight:
