Latch Hooking

This is not the same as the traditional rug hooking with strips of wool or fabric. This is the Shilcraft readycut package from 1973 that includes cut yarn that you basically make a knot around the linear threads of the base fabric. You pull the two loose ends through the loop and poke your thumb with the latch and wear your knuckles down to the bone tugging at the bits of yarn. I want to do a series of Hippie Crafts where I introduce a new craft technique while driving down the highway. Put it on next season's schedule.
