    Heh, heh!
    Yeah. latch hooking! As popular with rowdy, little boys, as those little plastic squares…with rods on their tops, that help you make strings into potholders! Hours of fun. 🙂

    Trivia- the 1950s, + 1960s, [American-football player], Mr. Rosey Grier, likes the sewing hobby, called needlepoint. I really like Rosey.

    (Rosey was famous in the 1970s, too).

    I think rug hooking was illegal in my state.

    I've had an old latch hooking of Papa Smurf since the early 1980's. I had a lot of patience with it. It took me 2 years to complete it.
