Rug hooking: Like I need another craft

It started when a friend showed up at a knitting retreat with this "knitting bag." I was instantly bewitched but when I researched the price, it exceeded the narrow little comfort zone under which we operate here at Nake-id HQ.

Then Sunday at Estes Park I saw this:

Cute, huh?

Equipped with a few extra balls in stash, it struck me that rug hooking might be a complementary pursuit. A quick lesson from the proprietress of Wooly Walkers and I was the proud owner of a yard of monk's cloth and a #10 Oxford Punch Needle.

Will be starting small with a tiny throw pillow.

Anyone else give in to one of the other fiber arts this weekend?
