I started hooking rugs as a hobby about twenty years ago. Hooking gave me an excuse to frequent second-hand clothing shops to look for wool clothing which I would then wash, cut into strips, and hook into rugs. The other advantage to hooking rugs is that you stay clean, not like when you make pots! Local lore has it that "it's a poor house that doesn't produce one rug a year."
