A year ago at the Northwest Spinner’s conference in Tacoma, I participated in the “fiber exchange”. You drop off a bag of un-spun fiber and you are given one from someone else. You communicate back and forth to figure out what you could make for the person whose fiber you got, and hopefully the person who got yours does the same. I was very fortunate that Cat Snyder picked up my fiber. I didn’t know Cat, but had seen some very creative and interesting knit creatures she had made. When she emailed me, she mentioned wanting to do a project using a technique called “hooking” [as in hooked rugs]. I thought of the lovely old rocker with its worn out pad. A year later, the lovely replacement pad arrived!
