As 2020 draws to a close, rug hookers plan their winter projects. This issue is full of ideas for the cozy winter season: a unique “self-portrait,” a woodland nighttime fantasy, vintage ornaments in pretty pastels, and, of course, Santa. Learn about International Rug Hooking Day, consider using silk ties in your hooking, and create a Fraktur angel for your family. Have you ever hooked your pet? Our article will give you the confidence to give it a try. And, on top of all that, we show you another way to use your stash of leftover worms—hook a holiday inspired tree! We have lots and lots of ways to keep busy during the dark days of winter. Come and join us!
