Which I will use to make one of these. You better believe that if there was any way possible, I would be sitting in the front row of Mary's class. Since I was lucky enough to get my own personal lesson from her in June, I will be chanelling her warm creative spirit as I sketch out a shape and put my own spin on a hooked pumpkin. My first step will be to cut strips out of this lovely wool to use for the project. I was going to do it tonight while I watched the Roosevelts on PBS.

Are you watching? I am completely fascinated by it. So much I don't know about the history of my own country and the people who shaped it.
Alas, I could not keep my eyes on both the television and the blade so no strips of wool were cut tonight. Luckily the weekend approaches. Chris has candy corn and cocktail peanuts on the shopping list. Pumpkin hooking requires treats. Special treats.
