I was going to wait to include this information in the next installment of the crocheted rag rug tutorial, but thought some of you might be able to benefit from it before then.
A few minutes ago I got the nicest e-mail from one of my readers who had information on the size and availability of the honkin', big gray hook I've used for my rugs.
Tina (thank you, thank you, thank you, Tina) said the hook is a Size "P" and in her area of the country it is sold in Wal-Mart stores in a dual package with an even larger blue hook, labeled Size "Q".
So for all of you eager rug makers that might be a place to check first if that source is available to you.
That's all for now. This Monday morning is bringing us some much needed snowfall, but only about 2" so far. Now at 11 o'clock it seems to have stopped but the air still feels very heavy and looks gray so if we keep our fingers crossed we might get some more yet today.
