Kits and Kits, Oh My!

I've had several requests for rug hooking kits lately.  I'm flattered when others want to hook my patterns and when they ask for a kit that looks like what I hooked it is even more of a compliment.  But hooking for the look I achieve, well that's a challenge to fulfill in a standard kit.

Kits make me nervous.  Kits make me sweat.  I've got to be precise and careful to get the wool measurements correct and do the math to charge a fair price for the kit.  Kits are technical in nature:  precision, math, orderliness!  It is a little nerve racking for me; I even procrastinate in working on the order (who me?).  I want my customers to be happy and not feel I shorted them on wool as they work on their project.

Another aspect about kitting:  I hook "all over the place" and pull wool from here, there and every place I can find it in my home when I'm working a project.  So pulling together what needs to be a prescribed assortment of wool to achieve my helter-skelter hooking style can be a challenge.  No less, I'm going to try to be better about noting how much wool I put in a rug as I'm hooking it and keep a ledger so I  can EASILY make kits when they are requested.

So as I've slowly filled the recent kit requests, I got a little bit smarter and made extras of these three rugs:

  • I have TWO EXTRA kits made up of the Bee and Skeps rug
  • I have ONE EXTRA of the Can You See Me? rug
  • I have THREE extra of the Lil' Scrappy Dog rug

If you are interested any of these kits, please email me at

Here are the rugs I've recently been kitting:
Bee and Skeps - two extra kits available of this rug
Can You See Me? - one extra kit of this rug
I have three kits of Lil' Scrappy Dog too if you are interested.
